Mickelson excited for Olympics

Phil Mickelson could be excused for having a one-track mind set squarely on Pinehurst, site of next year's U.S. Open. But in a recent video interview with Callaway, Mickelson revealed that he has his eye on another long-term goal.

"Heading into '14, I'm excited, but the thing I'm working for is '16. I want to be an Olympic athlete," said Mickelson, who will be 46 when golf is reintroduced into the Olympics in 2016.

Skip ahead to the 10 minute mark in the video below to hear why earning a spot on the U.S. team in Rio would mean so much to the five-time major champion.
