Mickelson ‘fine’ for Phoenix Open
It is all systems go for Phil Mickelson for this week’s Phoenix Open as he is slowly but surely getting over his back problem.
A bad back forced the 43-year-old American to withdraw from last week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines following the completion of the opening two rounds.
He has in the past been diagnosed with locked facet joints, and he immediately consulted back specialist Tom Boers in Georgia, but was given the all clear to compete.
The defending champion tested his back during a practice round at TPC Scottsdale on Wednesday and, while he is still not 100 per cent, he has decided he is fit enough to tee off on January 30.
“I had a good practice session, though I didn’t go full speed for much of it. I feel fine. I expect to play and play well,” the five-time major winner said in a statement.
