Mickelson confident for US Open

Phil Mickelson remains upbeat about his chances in the US Open (14/1 Tournament outright) despite having missed two cuts in his last three starts on the PGA Tour.

The American left-hander has spent the past fortnight working hard in practice and believes that his touch around the greens is back to its best after his struggles in the early season.

The 43-year-old has spent some time with coaches Butch Harmon and Dave Pelz to get his game right for the Memorial Tournament in Dublin.

Mickelson was pleased he had time to practice and stated: “I really had a good couple of weeks back home, I had a chance to spend time with my coaches, I’m really excited about these next three weeks.

“My short game right now, which has not been great this year, feels good now, I’m curious to see how it goes this week.”

Mickelson missed cuts at the Masters and the Players Championship and tied for 11th at the Wells Fargo Championship in his last three starts but does feel confident leading up to the US Open.

“I do think the results are going to come if I just play well,” he added. “I’m not worried about finishing first or second or top 10 or whatever. Building momentum, bringing confidence into my game, I should be alright.”

Mickelson has been grouped with fellow Americans Jordan Speith (25/1 US Open outright) and Bill Haas (80/1 US Open outright) for the first two rounds at Muirfield Village.
