Over the past several months, Phil Mickelson has established himself as one of the PGA Tour's biggest foes, and the six-time major champion seems to still be relishing that position.
Over the weekend, Mickelson participated in the LIV Golf competition at The International in Bolton, Massachusetts. Dustin Johnson defeated Anirban Lahiri
and Joaquin Niemann in the tournament's nail-biting finale by sinking a long eagle putt on the first playoff hole. Mickelson earned $134,000 despite placing tied for 40th.
Mickelson addressed the media following the competition to discuss how LIV has benefited both fans and all professional players.
The PGA Tour, he continued, "magically discovered" a tonne of fresh money, he remarked in an apparent swipe at them.
The PGA Tour has disclosed significant modifications that will take effect the following season. Many of these present PGA Tour players with chances to make significantly more money than in the past.
