Phil Mickelson could possibly be making a return to golf after the American submitted his name for the upcoming US Open major.
Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are among the 48 fully exempt players who will compete for the 122nd U.S. Open.
The tournament itself will be played from June 16-19 at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts.
Local qualifying begins April 25 and 11 final qualifiers – one in Japan, one in Canada and nine in the United States – will take place in May and June, with nine being played on June 6, the week prior to the tournament.
Woods is among 12 past champions to enter and he is exempt via his 2019 Masters victory. Mickelson’s PGA Championship win last year gave him a five-year exemption.
That doesn’t mean that either, or both, are confirmed to participate in the tournament
as their status for the event remains unclear.
Woods, 46, is coming off a 47th-place finish at the Masters, where he announced he would play the British Open in July but left in doubt next month’s PGA Championship as he continues to recover and rehabilitate injuries suffered in the car crash 14 months.
