Phil Mickelson signs with LIV Golf, will play the opening event this week

Phil Mickelson has signed a deal with LIV Golf Investments and will play the first Invitational Series event this week outside of London, ending a four-month hiatus from golf that had him beaded into controversy.

Mickelson, 51, will start playing Thursday in the $25 million, 54-hole event to be held at Centurion Golf Club, his first tournament act since he played in the Saudi International in early February.

“Phil Mickelson is without doubt one of the greatest golfers of this generation,” said Greg Norman, commissioner of golf and CEO of LIV. “His contributions to the sport and his connection to audiences around the world cannot be overstated, and we are grateful to have him.” “It is strengthening an exciting field in London as we are proud to launch a new era of golf.
