Phil Mickelson has never played this much golf this late in the year since the PGA Tour began a new season in October instead of January.
He's never had this much of a reason.
Mickelson is running out of time to show why U.S. captain Tiger Woods should pick him for the Presidents Cup. At stake is a streak that is unlikely to be matched. Mickelson has played on 24 consecutive Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams, qualifying for 20 of them. The last time he wasn't on a team was 1993, the year Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth were born.
