Phil Mickelson will return to the U.S. PGA Tour at the Bridgestone Invitational next week for his first tournament since he tied for second at the U.S. Open. Mickelson has been away for nearly two months because his wife, Amy, has breast cancer. She had surgery on July 1. At about that time, Mickelson learned his mother has breast cancer and is being treated. Mickelson’s decision was announced on Tuesday by tournament organizers and suggests he also will play the following week in the U.S. PGA Championship at Hazeltine. Bridgestone is the third of the four World Golf Championship events of 2009. Mickelson won the WGC’s CA Championship in March and has competed in all 10 previous Bridgestone Invitationals, with five top-10s. His best finish came in 1999 when he tied for second. A three-time major champion, Mickelson skipped the British Open, ending the longest active streak of majors at 61. He had played in every major dating to the 1994 U.S. Open. Tiger Woods is expected to confirm this week that he’ll join the Bridgestone field.
