Hernia surgery shelves Mickelson
Phil Mickelson faces an indefinite period out of action after undergoing a second hernia operation in the space of two months.
A statement from Mickelson’s management, Lagadere Sports, late on Monday said the 46-year-old five-time major winner was expected to make a full recovery.
The operation will not prevent the American being tournament ambassador at the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, California from Jan 19-22.
Mickelson had hernia surgery in October.
