Masters champion Phil Mickelson has followed Tiger Woods in committing to play the Quail Hollow Championship later this month.
Mickelson, who won his third green jacket last Sunday at Augusta, was revealed as an entrant by organisers of the Charlotte tournament in a statement issued today.
The American moved to number two in the world rankings following his Masters victory and becomes the third top-four ranked player to commit to the April 29-May 2 event, joining world number one Woods, who committed on Thursday, and number four Lee Westwood.
Mickelson has not won the competition in five previous appearances but has four top-10 finishes from his visits to Quail Hollow, his best result a tie for third in 2007.
“Phil has been a very positive ambassador of our tournament for many years now and we are excited to have him back in Charlotte,” the tournament’s executive director Kym Hougham told the official PGA Tour website.
