"You'll be OK. I'm excited to expertise this for the primary time".

For the first time in 30 years, Mickelson will miss the Waste Management Phoenix Open - where he's been victorious at TPC Scottsdale in 1996, 2005 and 2013 - to instead play in the Middle East for the first time since a runner-up finish at Abu Dhabi in 2014. "It can help grow that". There were only a few courses during my first stay in Dubai, they are now everywhere; same thing in Abu Dhabi and possibly in Saudi Arabia.

"After turning down opportunities to go to the Middle East for many years, I'm excited to go play and see a place in the world I'd never seen", Mickelson tweeted.

"Phil Mickelson has been at the top of the sport for more than 25 years and it will be fantastic for the people of Saudi Arabia to watch him play up close, while Tony Finau will no doubt wow the crowds with his incredible power hitting and skill".

Others committed to the Saudi Arabia tournament are Johnson, world No. 1 Brooks Koepka, Shane Lowry, Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia, who was disqualified previous year for a meltdown in which he damaged the greens.

I understand those who are upset or disappointed. And also a lot of top players are going to be playing there that particular week.

The European Tour past year came under heavy criticism for adding the Saudi International to its schedule and going ahead with the event, despite the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi a few months previously.

"I am really looking forward to playing in Saudi Arabia in January", Mickelson said in a statement, via ESPN.

Mickelson however says he has no regrets over missing the tournament in which he has been playing since his time at Arizona State University, because the Saudi International is a chance to compete in one of the world's "premier tournaments".

"But I understand, too". "I haven't figured out my schedule".

"I just don't want to go over there". For sure the tournaments that I've won, I'll defend.

'We will be back in Saudi and we'll continue to grow that event, ' European Tour CEO Pelley told Reuters earlier this year. The game of golf has grown.

Woods said he'll start getting concerned about players choosing to not play in the Phoenix Open if "all of a sudden 10 of the guys that we thought would come, aren't coming". "I would have been perfectly happy if he would have won just because of how big that Open Championship win is, and how he did it, that Saturday performance was quite impressive".
