Lefty legend Phil Mickelson has reportedly made a decision on his golf future.

Mickelson, 51, has signed up for two golf events, indicating he's planning on returning to the sport. The lefty pro has applied to play in the first LIV Golf event series in London and the PGA Championship.

"Our client Phil Mickelson is officially registered to play in the PGA Championship as well as the U.S. Open," said Steve Loy on behalf of Mickelson.

"We have also filed a request on his behalf for a release to play in the first LIV Gold Invitational in London, June 9 - 11. This request complies with the deadline of April 25 set forth by the PGA Tour to compete in a conflicting tour event.

"Phil currently has no concrete plans on when and where he will play. Any actions taken are in no way a reflection of a final decision made, but rather to keep all options open."

Well there you have it. Phil Mickelson will be playing again. This shouldn't be a surprise.

Mickelson went off the grid following his comments about Saudi Arabian government. He missed several tournaments, including the Masters.

The 51-year-old has taken a few months off since the incident. He also lost several sponsorships in the process.

It looks like Mickelson will soon be returning, although his plans aren't clear just yet.
