Phil Mickelson has surprised many, and he will be competing in the LIV Golf International series. Of course, reactions immediately followed, and one of the first was the reaction of Greg Norman, who is also the chief executive and commissioner of LIV Golf: ‘Phil Mickelson is unequivocally one of the greatest golfers of this generation.
‘His contributions to the sport and connection to fans around the globe cannot be overstated and we are grateful to have him. ‘He strengthens an exciting field for London where we’re proud to launch a new era for golf.’- he said, as quoted by metro.
Phil Mickelson's statement
In a Twitter post, Phil Mickelson decided to apologize to anyone he offended with his statements. He is ready for the challenges that follow and cannot wait for the start of the tournament.
‘First and foremost, I want to again apologise to the many people I offended and hurt with my comments a few months ago. ‘I have made mistakes in my career in some of the things I have said and done. Taking time away and self-reflecting has been very humbling.
‘I needed to start prioritising the people that I love the most and work on becoming a better version of myself. ‘I have spent this time with Amy and loved ones. I have been engaged and intentional in continued therapy and feel healthy and much more at peace.
I realise I still have a long way to go, but I am embracing the work ahead.’ This will be a great thing for him, and we know how good he is at what he does. ‘I am ready to come back to play the game I love but after 32 years this new path is a fresh start, one that is exciting for me at this stage of my career and is clearly transformative, not just for myself, but ideally for the game and my peers. We will see what LIV Golf will bring us, but there is a lot of noise about everything, we hope for the best.
