After becoming golf’s oldest Major winner at last month’s PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson will attempt to repeat that feat at the US Open this week at Torrey Pines. A win would also complete the career Grand Slam for the 51-year-old Mickelson, who has come agonizingly close over the years to winning the lone Major title that has eluded him.
Mickelson is not among the favorites, however, this week at Torrey Pines in his home city of San Diego. Jon Rahm enters the tournament with the best odds, followed by Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth. If the golf gods have any sense of humor, they will make it so the feuding DeChambeau and Koepka get paired up at some point over the four-day tournament.
