Mickelson to skip Farmers Insurance Open


For the first time in nearly three decades, Phil Mickelson will not participate in the PGA Tour event held closest to his San Diego home.

After 28 consecutive appearances at the Farmers Insurance Open, the 48-year-old announced he’ll skip this year’s event at Torrey Pines Golf Course next weekend. Mickelson has won the event three times, with the latest victory coming in 2001, though he’s posted only one top-10 finish since 2009.

At the end of the 2018 season, the 43-time winner on Tour announced he would make some adjustments to his 2019 schedule. Those changes also include not playing in the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club, where Mickelson has won twice.

Mickelson’s next event will be the Waste Management Phoenix Open, followed by the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am before heading south to defend his title at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Michelle Wie to miss rest of 2018 after undergoing hand surgery


Michelle Wie announced on Instagram that she will miss the rest of the 2018 season after undergoing hand surgery to fix a lingering issue.

I think John Mayer once said, “Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, be strong and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.” ☺️ A lot of people have been asking me what’s been going on with my hand and I haven’t shared much, because I wasn’t sure what was going on myself. After countless MRI’s, X-rays, CT scans, and doctor consultations, I was diagnosed with having a small Avulsion Fracture, bone spurring, and nerve entrapment in my right hand. After 3 cortisone injections and some rest following the British Open, we were hoping it was going to be enough to grind through the rest of the season, but it just wasn’t enough to get me through. So I made the decision after Hana Bank to withdraw from the rest of the season, come back to the states, and get surgery to fix these issues. It’s been disheartening dealing with pain in my hand all year but hopefully I am finally on the path to being and STAYING pain free! Happy to announce that surgery was a success today and I cannot wait to start my rehab so that I can come back stronger and healthier than ever. Huge thank you to Dr. Weiland’s team at HSS for taking great care of me throughout this process and to all my fans for your unwavering support. It truly means the world to me. ❤️ I’ll be back soon guys!!!! Promise 🤝

The 29-year-old had bone spurs, nerve entrapment, and an avulsion fracture on her right hand.

The injury forced her to withdraw from the Women’s British Open in August, and she didn’t play again until two weeks ago at the UL International Crown.

Wie has suffered numerous injuries throughout her career, including neck, back, hip, knee, and ankle issues. She also had an emergency appendectomy in late 2017, forcing her to miss time.

“I don’t think there is one joint or bone in her body that hasn’t had some sort of injury or issue,” her longtime coach David Leadbetter said earlier this year, according to Randall Mell of Golf Channel.
