Mickelson’s representatives confirmed to Front Office Sports’ Michael McCarthy on Tuesday. They have “started exploratory talks” with networks about Mickelson becoming a golf analyst in the near future.
Mickelson has won 44 times on the PGA Tour throughout his career, and inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012.
He last won at the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, though he has missed the cut in four of his eight appearances on Tour this season.
His best finish came at the Safeway Open in September, when he finished T44.
Though his Tour career seems to be winding down. Mickelson boats a perfect record on the PGA Tour Champions the senior Tour for players over 50.
Phil Mickelson, who turned 50 last year, won both the Charles Schwab Series at Ozark National and the Dominion Energy Charity Classic last season.
He’s participate in “The Match” three different times with various celebrities and stole the show in the made-for-TV golf challenge. He’s repeatedly jump into the broadcast booth on Tour, and even shined at the PGA Championship last year alongside Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo.
He hosted a 9-hole charity challenge at The American Express golf tournament in January. A hit especially when he jumped in for a quick bunker challenge at PGA West.
Where Mickelson ends up, though, is a different story. CBS, ESPN and NBC all hold rights to golf tournaments throughout the season and could realistically make a play for Mickelson.
