Mickelson to host military charity golf event

Phil Mickelson has announced he will be hosting a one-off golf event on Nov 30 - Dec 1 at the TPC Swagrass course to benefit military charities.

Mickelson will host the Military Appreciation Gala and Pro-Am Chairty Golf Tournament with a plethora of his fellow Hall of Famers.

A 36-Hole tournament, Mickelson announced a filed that includes Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Hale Irwin, Nancy Lopez, Sandy Lyle, Vijay Singh and Curtis Strange from the Hall of Fame, alongside other luminaries such as past Players Championship winners David Duval, Fred Funk and Mark McCumber; and major champions Mark Calcavecchia, Larry Mize, Andy North, Mark O’Meara, Fuzzy Zoeller and Corey Pavin.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Birdies for the Brave, a military charity set up by Mickelson and his wife Amy in 2003 to support disabled troops and support for spouses and children of servicemen killed in action.

Mickelson has also promised to include a concert that will feature "A-list" country musicians.

“We’re going to make this a real special two-day event,” Mickelson said.
