Bad news for Mickelson’s fans- the great golfer has confirmed not to participate at the prestigious Cadillac World Golf Championship Match Play.
Caddie Jim confirmed the previous week that Phil was quite stirred up regarding the tournament and hence the player’s latest decision to withdraw has left many flummoxed and disappointed- it’s always a treat to watch Mickelson in action.
Mickelson, too, sounded very disappointed about his withdrawal from the WGC event, something that he was so passionate about. He has usually missed out on match-play event from 2011 as the dates clashed with his kids’ school breaks. Besides, he did not like the erstwhile backdrop Dove Mountain. But as 2015 made a change to both these factors, Phil was really eager to play this time.
“I am really glad with the latest format & TPC Harding Park seems to be a fantastic backdrop for the match play. Thus, it is really very unfortunate that I would not be capable to play this great event this year”, remarked a disappointed Mickelson.
He has already informed PGA Tour about his decision to withdraw. In regards to reasons behind such a disappointing turn of events, the great golfer cited it is his “personal reasons” which won’t allow him to take part at WGC match play this time.
Such a decision is certainly not good for the golfer’s near future, irrespective of the reasons that pushed such a move from him. Now, the main question that pops up is whether he would be playing the Players or not.
