AKRON, Ohio - For the first time since a muddy Monday in June Phil Mickelson returned to the PGA Tour on Wednesday.
Mickelson – playing this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, his first event since the U.S. Open – emerged onto the Firestone practice range at 9:50 a.m.
With swing coach Butch Harmon looking on, Mickelson hit no more than two dozen balls, most were fairway woods and hybrids, before teeing off for his practice round with Nick Watney and Dustin Johnson.
If Wednesday's action is any indication, Lefty is not as rusty as his timecard might suggest.
