Phil Mickelson has turned his attention to his next major opportunity.

Following his usual pre-major schedule, Lefty was spotted practicing Monday at Oak Hill Country Club, site of next week’s PGA Championship, according to local reports. The PGA’s official Twitter account captured this shot of Mickelson, in a white polo and black shorts, accompanied by caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay and short-game coach Dave Pelz. 

Rickie Fowler was also reportedly on the East Course on Monday, as was Graeme McDowell, who played his second consecutive practice round and tweeted this picture.

Mickelson, who two weeks ago won the British Open for his fifth major title, is in the field for this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He won the 2005 PGA and tied for 23rd the last time the PGA was held at Oak Hill, in ’03.
