Last year, golf star Mickelson became the oldest major winner in golf history with his victory at the PGA Championships. He will not break this record for the time being. Apparently in a dispute with the tour, he does not appear.
Mickelson is at odds with the PGA Tour, having accused it of "insufferable greed" earlier this year. The PGA Tour recently announced that it would ban players from attending the opening event of the new, rival, multi-million dollar LIV Golf Invitational Series in London. The new league is financed by a consortium from Saudi Arabia.
According to his advisor, Mickelson, like the German Martin Kaymer, had made an inquiry to participate in the London tournament. Mickelson has not played since attending the Saudi International in February.
