Phil Mickelson to cut playing schedule by 25 percent to improve winning chances

London, Sept 24 (ANI): Golfer Phil Mickelson is planning to cut his schedule by a quarter next year to improve his chances after an inconsistent season, even though he won his first Open Championship this year.

According to the Guardian, Mickelson secured a memorable victory in the Open at Muirfield in July, with his other successes coming at the Scottish Open and Phoenix Open.

Yet after signing off with a tie for 12th at the Tour Championship in Atlanta, nine shots adrift of the winner Henrik Stenson, Mickelson explained his plan for improvement in 2014, which is also a Ryder Cup year, the report said.

He said that it has been a really good year for him and he has had some good things happen in his game but he cannot play at the highest level every single week, adding that he would cut his playing schedule by 25 percent. (ANI)
