It's been a turbulent year for Phil Mickelson, to say the least.

After longtime golf writer Alan Shipnuck revealed the golf legend's controversial comments on the LIV Tour ahead of the release of his upcoming biography, Mickelson disappeared from the public eye for months before reemerging to declare he was joining the tour backed by Saudi Arabia.

Mickelson finished 34th in his first LIV Tour appearance and will be allowed to play in the U.S. Open this weekend despite being banned from PGA Tour events. Why, you ask? Because the United States Golf Association is in charge of the Open, not the PGA. So even though Mickelson cannot play in PGA Tour Events, he can still participate in majors like the U.S. Open for the time being.

What are Lefty's odds to emerge victorious this weekend, and how has he played here in the past?

Phil Mickelson U.S. Open Pick and Prediction

I've got no faith in Mickelson to perform well at The Country Club at Brookline this week. He finished 10-over par in the inaugural LIV Tour event last week, his first competition in months.

Mickelson wasn't good on the PGA Tour even before he put his foot in his mouth and took a long hiatus, missing the cut at The American Express and Farmer's Insurance Open in his final events on Tour.

Sure, Mickelson would love to return in a blaze of glory, but I'd stay far away from the disgraced golfer when placing your bets at WynnBET.

Phil Mickelson U.S. Open Past Performances

Mickelson has finished in second place six times but never actually won the U.S. Open, as it's the lone major he's missing for the elusive career Grand Slam.

He hasn't finished better than T48 since 2014, when he placed T28. Mickelson was second in 2013, but throughout his career the U.S. Open has been his worst major.
