Mickelson, others practice at Oak Hill

Phil Mickelson spent Monday practicing at Oak Hill Country Club, site of the PGA Championship next week. He was joined by his caddie Jim Mackay and putting coach Dave Pelz.

The PGA of America's twitter account captured this photo of Mickelson, wearing shorts, while he practiced.

Rickie Fowler, Graeme McDowell and Bo Van Pelt were also on site.

Tiger Woods is expected to arrive at Oak Hill around 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday. His caddie Joe LaCava was already there, scouting the course.

All are in the field at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, a short flight from Rochester, N.Y.

The last time the PGA Championship was played at Oak Hill, Mickelson had a share of the lead after a 66 in the opening round. He shot 75-72-75 the next three days and tied for 23rd.

Woods, meanwhile, shot 74-72-73-73 at Oak Hill for his highest total in a major -- until last month at Merion, where he finished his week at 13-over 293.
