Phil Mickelson: Hoping for a change in form at the Scottish Open later this week
Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson is a late entry for the Scottish Open in Inverness starting on Thursday.
Mickelson has added the event to his schedule and been given the final sponsor's invitation.
His inclusion comes after a run in which he withdrew from The Memorial, finished only 65th at the US Open and then missed the cut - along with Tiger Woods - at the Greenbrier Classic on Friday night.
It was the first time Mickelson and Woods had crashed out early from the same event in their professional careers.
The left-hander's missed cut in West Virginia took his number of consecutive rounds without breaking par to seven, a career worst.
"I really have been off," he said. "I don't know what to say about that.
"The parts don't feel that far off, but I haven't been putting them together.
"It doesn't feel bad off the tee, it doesn't feel bad with the iron play, it doesn't feel bad chipping or putting, but I'm making a lot of loose drives here or there, some loose iron shots here or there, missing some short putts here or there."
