Mickelson upgrades to long pants over shorts at U.S. Open, but wrist injury is still there
Oakmont, PA – Phil Mickelson teed off for a practice round just before 8 am this morning at the US Open in Oakmont.
He only made it nine holes. Afterwards, he spent the morning on the practice green with short game coach Dave Pelz, his caddie Bones, and the PGA Tour’s favorite tattooed muscle man and trainer Jim Weathers.
At least Lefty had some long pants on after wearing shorts yesterday. He also traded in a makeshift bandage for a more stable wrist brace.
Mickelson says he plans on nine holes again tomorrow. He is also spending very little time on the driving range so he doesn’t aggravate it. He also won’t be signing autographs this week, doctor’s orders.
Mickelson withdrew from the first round of the Memorial tournament two weeks ago after tweaking a wrist injury he says he first got at Oakmont in a practice round.
