Mickelson back for Presidents Cup

Phil Mickelson will maintain his record of being the only player in history to take part in all 12 Presidents Cups after being chosen as a captain’s pick by US skipper Steve Stricker on Wednesday.

Mickelson, the 47-year-old five-time major winner, was selected alongside Charley Hoffman as Stricker completed his 12-man line-up for the September 28-October 1 Ryder Cup-style event at Liberty National in New Jersey.

International Team captain Nick Price meanwhile opted for Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo and India’s Anirban Lahiri for the event.

“He is so valuable in the team room and is a tremendous partner on the golf course,” Stricker said of Mickelson’s selection.

Mickelson’s Presidents Cup call-up will be his 23rd consecutive team appearance for the United States, a sequence which stretches back to 1994.

He has a record of 23-16-12 and will have the chance to surpass Tiger Woods’ record for most matches won in Presidents Cup history, which stands at 24-15-1.

Mickelson is hitting form at the right time, grabbing a share of sixth place at last week’s Dell Technologies Championship, his best finish in a stroke-play event this season.
