Phil Mickelson has been added to the court for this week’s LIV Golf Invitational series opener at Centurian Club.

Mickelson, 51, has been linked to LIV Golf for months but began a self-imposed hiatus from the sport in February – even skipping his PGA Championship title defense – amid backlash over comments he has facts about the breakaway tour.

The 51-year-old’s public image took a hit when the author of an unauthorized biography says the American golfer told him he was ready to look beyond the human rights record man in Saudi Arabia to gain economic leverage on the PGA Tour.

Other golfers already confirmed for the 48-man event to be held June 9-11 at the Centurion Club include former world number 1 Dustin Johnson, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Louis Oosthuizen.
