News just in that Mickelson will not defend PGA Championship next week. He has been on hiatus since Farmer's Tournament end of January making news about him possibly playing on Greg Norman's new LIV Tour. Norman back in the 80's and 90's was disgruntled back then as well wanting to have a new tour created despite his success on PGA and European Tours making him the world's best golfer at that time. The first tournament for them is in June opposite the RBC Canadian Open where looks like older name players from Europe are most likely to play for virtually guaranteed huge money just to show up.

More info, but at this point Mickelson had not withdrawn from PGA and this article focuses on LIV Tour. Mickelson flirted with idea back in February, but his comments were very provocative about Saudi Arabian money sponsoring the new tour otherwise it may have started up already.

Also to mention other major golf tour affected when the week the LIV Tour starts off would be the European Tour renamed DP World Tour, scheduled for June 09 - 12 that tournament being the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed at Halmstad GC, Tylösand, Sweden.
