DeChambeau in, Mickelson out of PLAYERS Championship

Bryson DeChambeau, who has not competed since the Farmers Insurance Open due to an injury to his left hand, will compete in next week’s PLAYERS Championship, according to the PGA Tour.

Phil Mickelson, who has been the subject of criticism since his flirtation with the Saudi Golf League and the controversial comments he made about the PGA Tour to golf writer Alan Shipnuck, will not compete in the tournament as he continues to take time away from the game .

Mickelson garnered criticism after explaining to Shipnuck his reasoning for getting involved with the proposed Saudi breakaway tour.

“We know the killed [Washington Post reporter and U.S. resident Jamal] Khashoggi and have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay. Knowing all of this, why would I even consider it? Because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reshape how the PGA Tour operates.
