Phil Mickelson turned back the clock and shocked the golf world, and oddsmakers, this weekend after capturing his sixth major title.
That got us thinking…what do Mickelson’s prospects look like for the U.S. Open, or even another Ryder Cup appearance?
SportsBetting released a series of Mickelson prop bets Monday morning, as well as early odds for America’s Open Championship at Torrey Pines.
The number-crunchers are giving Lefty less than a 3% chance to take home the only trophy that has eluded him. They do, however, expect him to be added to the 2021 Ryder Cup team.
