Here's a gloomy news for all those who thought that they would witness Tiger and Phil, the biggest Golfing legends battle it out on the fairways. Phil Mickelson, has sensationally withdrawn from the PGA Championship 2022.

He withdrew citing injuries and health issues. But there are speculations that he withdrew following the furore after he was engulfed in a scandal related to his comments about a Saudi Arabia-backed breakaway tour some time back. 

 

 

The PGA of America announced Friday, at about 5 p.m. ET, that Mickelson had withdrawn from the event. “We would have welcomed him to participate,” the PGA said in a statement, but now the year’s second major can go off without the circus that a Mickelson appearance would have brought. Tiger and Jordan, Scottie and Rory – the stage is now yours.

It’s the first time since the 2015 Open (McIlroy) that a major champion hasn’t returned the following year to defend his title, and just the fourth time overall since 1960.

 

 

“I think he’s trying to figure out when the right time is for him,” PGA of America chief executive Seth Waugh told the “5 Clubs Conversations” podcast.

 

“I think the game is trying to figure out the right time for him, too. How long is enough? And is he ready mentally and physically to do it?”
