Mickelson returns to Texas
Fresh from a two-week break, Phil Mickelson will step up his Masters preparations at the Valero Texas Open this coming weekend.
The world number five hasn’t exactly set the world alight with his golf so far in 2014 with his tied 16th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in the second weekend in March his best finish to date.
That display at Doral, which came just over a month after he withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open because of a muscle pain in his back, was also the last time he was in action.
The five-time major winner opted to take a break and spend some time with the family, but he will headline the Texas Open at TPC San Antonio from Thursday.
He will be joined by two-time Texas winner Zach Johnson, world number 11 Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth, who is ranked 13th.
FedExCup leader Jimmy Walker and Patrick Reed, who won the WGC-Cadillac Championship will also take part.
