Mickelson to start season in San Diego next week

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Phil Mickelson will open his U.S. PGA Tour season next week in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.

Mickelson had said after winning the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in November that he would take 10 weeks off and return at Torrey Pines, where he has won three times but not since 2001.

The tournament this week found a title sponsor, but not much of a field. Mickelson is the only player from the top 10 in the world, with Robert Allenby and Ernie Els making it three out of the top 20.

Missing for the second straight year is Tiger Woods, who is taking an indefinite break from golf while he tries to save his marriage from his extramarital affairs.
