The PGA is claiming it was Mickelson's decision. I don't buy it. Its one thing to skip the Masters, the greatest championship in golf, but quite another to drop out of the PGA when he is the defending champion. I believe he is suspended.

It was Phil's decision.

The PGA of America announced Friday that Mickelson has withdrawn from the PGA Championship.

"We have just been informed that Phil Mickelson has withdrawn from the PGA Championship," the statement said. "Phil is the defending champion and currently eligible to be a PGA Life Member and we would have welcomed him to participate. We wish Phil and [wife] Amy the very best and look forward to his return to golf.".


It's not as if Phil is shy about expressing himself. If they were lying about that he'd say so.

Can you imagine him missing the Masters and that massive ego of his getting all the pre tournament attention for the upcoming PGA

I just don't see him letting them slide with lying about it.

Probably told him to shut up and swallow it or get a lifetime ban from the PGA like they are threatening the other players with if they join the new league. Just seems odd to me.

Bfd if I'm Phil, especially as much as he likes to tell us what he thinks. He's 52 years old. It's basically over competitively against the best in the world. Unless he's excited about trying to be the best of the old, but not too old, guys how can they really hurt him? He's worth $400 million.

I think it's his decsision. He's sort of at war with them atm and his abscence hurts the tour more than it does him. What are the odds he'd compete given his recent play this season? There's nothing in it for him. But he'd be their big draw heading in.

Phil showing the world what many of his peers have known for a long time. He's nothing more than a money chasing asshole.
