Rarely has Phil Mickelson drawn back from any sort of suspense, although it’s mostly restricted to his gameplay. This 4 times major champion had to withdraw from Texas Open during the previous week after he pulled a muscle badly on the right side. He has waited substantially to draw an end to the guessing game about whether or not he will play in the Master in the upcoming week.
Finally on Wednesday afternoon Mickelson announced on his website that he has every intension to take part in the upcoming Houston Open. This decision was taken after a light practice session for couple of days at Augusta National, when Mickelson reported that that his right side was slightly sore instead of hurting. He further commented that he in order to give himself the best possible chance at Masters, he has to first compete in Houston. If he had felt that he might injure himself more, he would have drawn back from the play off, however past few days have gone better.
Mickelson’s comeback to Houston Golf Club, previously called Redstone Golf Club, brings into limelight a field which includes Rory Mcllroy, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia and Darren Andrew Points, the defending champion. Mcllroy commented that he just cannot recollect a time when the sport lacked a dominant someone who is heading into the championship. He added that he hasn’t had a word with Tiger Woods post his back surgery, which is keeping him out of the upcoming Augusta National. The ex No. 1 also commented that on an overall level and not just Masters specifically seems much wide open opportunity wise during the time when he was a pro. It is almost like golf as a sport is waiting for that dominant someone to make a mark.
