SAN DIEGO — Three-time Farmers Insurance Open champion Phil Mickelson will not be playing in this year’s tournament, breaking his streak of 28 straight appearances.
“I want to share my updated tour schedule: this week I will be playing here in the desert, Phoenix, Pebble Beach, and then defending my title in Mexico,” the Rancho Santa Fe resident and University of San Diego High School graduate tweeted Friday. “My streak of 28-straight Farmers Insurance Opens will end next week. I will try to make it up to the great community of SD!”
Tiger Woods has committed to playing in the tournament, which will kick off Thursday at Torrey Pines Golf Course. The four-day tournament is considered one of San Diego’s largest sporting events of the year, attracting more than 100,000 visitors.
