US Open Golf 2022 Preview

Phil Mickelson will golf in his second PGA Tour event after a long absence since February.

He joins a tough field of PGA golfers at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts for the U .S. Open. The six-time runner-up last competed in the LIV Golf Invitational Series on June 9-11 in London.

The LIV Golf Invitational Series has been a source of controversy due to its Saudi Arabia backing and Mickelson’s support of it.

“So I think it’s been pretty public that I’m suspended [from the PGA Tour] along with a bunch of other players, so it would be only speculative going forward,” Mickelson told the media via ESPN’s Mark Schlabach and Paolo Uggetti. “I am going to play the LIV events. I am going to play the British Open, but anything other than that would be pure speculation. I don’t know how this is all going to play out.

“My preference is to be able to choose which path I would like, one or the other or both,” Mickelson added. “I feel that I gave as much back to the PGA Tour and the game of golf that I could throughout my 30 years here, and through my accomplishments on the course I’ve earned a lifetime membership. I intend to keep that and then choose going forward which events to play and not.”

While Mickelson has been public about his backing of the LIV, defending U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm has been open about his thoughts on the new tour.

“Money is great, but when [his wife] Kelley and I — this first thing happened, we started talking about it, and we’re like, will our lifestyle change if I got $400 million? No, it will not change one bit,” Rahm said via ESPN’s Paolo Uggetti. “Truth be told, I could retire right now with what I’ve made and live a very happy life and not play golf again. So I’ve never really played the game of golf for monetary reasons. I play for the love of the game, and I want to play against the best in the world. I’ve always been interested in history and legacy, and right now the PGA Tour has that.”

“Nobody is talking about winning that event in London with the essence that some other events have,” Rahm added. “And that to me is what’s attractive, being able to consider yourself champion of this with a history that comes with it.”

Rahm looks to add to the history books at the U.S. Open and become the latest back-to-back winner of the event. Brooks Koepka last did it in 2017 and 2018.
