Mickelson to return in Farmers Insurance Open


Phil Mickelson will make his comeback in the Farmers Insurance Open next month.

The five-time major champion has undergone two hernia operations since he was last in competitive action at the Safeway Open in October.

Mickelson will not play in the CareerBuilder Challenge, a tournament which he is an ambassador of, in Palm Desert, California from January 19-22 as he recovers from his latest surgery.

However, the 46-year-old will be in the field at the Farmers Insurance Open, a tournament which he has won three times, in his hometown of San Diego the following week.
