Mickelson to play in South Korea

6th August 2019, 16:18 by Neil Foster

It has been confirmed that Phil Mickelson will play in October's CJ Cup as the PGA Tour visits South Korea next season.

The Jeju Island event made its PGA Tour debut in 2017, with Justin Thomas landing the spoils on that occasion, while four-time major winner Brooks Koepka lifted the trophy in October 2018.

It will be the first time 49-year-old Mickelson has played in the Nine Bridges tournament and his first appearance in South Korea since featuring in the 2015 Presidents cup.

While attention is now focused on this season and the impending FedEx Cup play-offs, next season's schedule has already been published, with the 2019-20 campaign set to begin at the Greenbrier Classic on September 15.

October sees three events in the Far East, with the CJ Cup joined by the inaugural Zozo Championship in Japan and China's WGC-HSBC Champions.

Mickelson said he was looking forward to playing in South Korea once again, while Koepka has also committed to making the trip to Asia.
