Mickelson Is In 

Representatives from the Stanford St. Jude Championship announced this afternoon that Phil Mickelson will participate in this year's tournament.

From the press release:

"Phil Mickelson committed today to play in next week's Stanford St. Jude Championship … but that's only half the story. Tournament officials also learned that defending U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy also committed to play.

"Mickelson and Ogilvy are ranked two and eight in the world rankings which means the tournament has five of the top 10 and 12 of the top 30 players in the world – one of the best fields in the tournament’s history."

The other top-10 players are Adam Scott (No. 4), plus Vijay Singh (6th), and Retief Goosen (10th).

Fingers have been crossed that Mickelson would sign on and bring more attention to newly overhauled Stanford St. Jude Championship, and hence, more donations for St. Jude.

The tournament begins next Monday, June 4th.
