Phil Mickelson Commits to Play in Rocket Mortgage Classic,
by Matt Charboneau, The Detroit News

While the July 4th weekend is sure to add some pop to the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the third-year PGA Tour event just added some true firepower.

Phil Mickelson, who wowed the sporting world last weekend by becoming the oldest major champion in golf history by winning the PGA Championship at the age of 50, has committed to play in this year’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, set for July 1-4 at Detroit Golf Club.

“As evidenced by his record-breaking performance last weekend at the PGA Championship, Phil is one of the best to ever play the game, an electric performer and continues to be a huge draw for fans attending PGA TOUR events,” said Jason Langwell, executive director of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. “Adding a player like Phil, along with the major champions and top-50 players who have also committed, is shaping the strongest field in Rocket Mortgage Classic history.”

So, what do you guys this of this?  Detroit News brings up old news that did not implicate Phil as anything but a victim, just as a gambler with some ties to criminals.

Phil Mickelson was reportedly cheated out of $500,000 by a Detroit area bookie in the early 2000s, something the Detroit News detailed on Tuesday.
