Phil Mickelson will not defend his title at the PGA Championship this year amid fallout from his comments about Saudi Arabia and his links to the Saudi-funded rival golf league, the PGA of America announced Friday.

The organization was informed that Mickelson was withdrawing from the tournament even though the PGA welcomed his participation. Mickelson becomes just the third PGA champion not to defend his title in the last 75 years.

The article goes on to state the following:

At age 50, Mickelson became the oldest champion in 161 years of the majors, but the four-time PGA Tour Champions winner has not played since Feb. 6 after he accused the PGA Tour of “obnoxious greed” in an interview with Golf Digest.


Mickelson is also said to be promoting a rival league funded by the Public Investment Fund and run by Greg Norman. “He also seemed to dismiss Saudi Arabia’s human rights atrocities, including the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashogg, Fox News reported.

Mickelson was heavily criticized and ended up old=sing sponsors, prompting the pro to apologize for his “reckless” comments.

“We have just been informed that Phil Mickelson has withdrawn from the PGA Championship,” the PGA said in a statement. “Phil is the defending champion and currently eligible to be a PGA life member, and we would have welcomed him to participate. We wish Phil and Amy the very best and look forward to his return to golf.”

PGATour.com reported:

One of the most popular players in the game, Mickelson, 51, is a 45-time PGA TOUR winner who shocked the golf world with his PGA Championship win at Kiawah last summer. He became the oldest winner of a major, and added to a victory total that had long since put him into the World Golf Hall of Fame. It was his sixth major title.

Mickelson also has four victories on PGA TOUR Champions, but has not played competitively since stepping away from the game in late February, explaining, in part, “The past 10 years I have felt the pressure and stress slowly affecting me at a deeper level. I know I have not been my best and desperately need some time away to prioritize the ones I love most and work on being the man I want to be.”

  1. Excuse me but two weeks ago the PGA declined to admit Phil to play in the upcoming tournament. Sounds like a lot of spin going on here on both sides.

  2. He’s white and successful, what else would you expect. Corrupt media, sports world is just as bad, all the thug punks trashing America while collecting huge sums of money and they don’t care where it comes from. Bunch of hypocrites and even the PGA promotes all this woke bull💩. Phil is a true gentleman and too bad there are so many troll morons in what use to be a great country.
