Mickelson to end Phoenix streak to play Saudi International

December 02, 2019

Phil Mickelson has become the latest star to commit to the European Tour's controversial stop in Saudi Arabia, a decision that means he'll miss one of his favorite PGA Tour events for the first time in 30 years. Mickelson has added his name to the decorated field for next year's Saudi International. Dustin Johnson won the inaugural edition earlier this year, but the existence of the event has received criticism over the country's human rights record and the 2018 murder of U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
