Phil Mickelson has filed for entry into this year's U.S. Open.

The 51-year-old American golfer has yet to take the course for a PGA Tour event since apologizing for his controversial comments about the Saudi Golf Super League (LIV Golf Invitational Series) earlier this year.

While nothing is official yet, it appears Lefty intends on taking the course at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts for this year's Major tournament.

Fans from around the golf world took to Twitter to react to this news. "Looks like Phil hasn't moved to Riyadh yet," one fan joked about Mickelson's rumored connections to the Saudi League. "Phil *only* playing the US Open this year would be so funny, but also incredibly depressing," another added.

Mickelson's last tournament appearance came when he was cut from the Farmers Insurance Open in late January. His last win came in the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in November 2021.

Mickelson finished with a tie for 62nd in last year's U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
