Golfing greats Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have registered for next month’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma that runs from May 19-22.
The final field will be set May 9, so it is possible that Woods or Mickelson could withdraw before then.
But, if they both show up, there will definitely be lots of excitement.
The 51-year-old Mickelson, became the oldest major winner in history by winning last year’s PGA Championship.
Phil hasn’t played on the PGA Tour since missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open in late January.
Mickelson has been roasted and has lost sponsors over his support of the Saudi Arabian government’s new golf circuit.
Also, golf fans could also get both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson competing in the U.S. Open later this year.
According to reports, both Woods and Mickelson have filed official entries for the U.S. Open, which takes place in June.
That doesn’t mean Woods and Mickelson are 100 percent playing, but right now that’s their intention.
