Mickelson set for US Open

Phil Mickelson plans to play at the St Jude Classic and US Open, according to the latest edition of Golf World magazine.

Phil Mickelson plans to return to PGA Tour action at the St Jude Classic, Golf World magazine reported on Monday.

The world number two suspended his season indefinitely in May after his wife Amy was diagnosed with breast cancer.

According to the report, she is scheduled to undergo surgery at the end of June, allowing Mickelson to play at St Jude from June 11-14 and the US Open at Bethpage Black the following week.

Should he line up for the second major of the season at the New York venue, Mickelson can expect an emotional welcome.

He received huge support from the galleries at the Long Island public course when the tournament was previously held there in 2002, finishing three strokes behind Tiger Woods, one of four occasions he has been runner-up in this event.
