Mickelson adds event after missed cut

By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Phil Mickelson didn’t make it to the weekend here at The Greenbrier Classic, where he missed the cut for a second straight year.

He will be in the field for next week’s Scottish Open, however, after asking for and receiving a last-minute sponsor’s exemption into the event.

It was a surprise move after Mickelson said Friday that he planned to head to Europe on Monday with his family before going to Royal Lytham & St. Annes on Friday to prepare for the British Open.

"We got a phone call (Friday) night from Phil's management company saying he'd very much like to play at Castle Stuart,'' Scottish Open tournament director Peter Adams told the newspaper Scotland on Sunday. "They asked if we had any invitations left and we did. All the parties on the invitation committee were obviously unanimously in favor of Phil getting an invitation and he is a terrific addition to the field.''

Mickelson is looking to find his form after failing to break par in his last seven rounds on TOUR, the longest streak of his career.
