Phil Mickelson reduces the likelihood of a duel between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour
Phil Mickelson joined LIV Golf last summer and recently took a step back after coming under scrutiny for his comments about the controversial circuit.
On Thursday, Mickelson took to social media to respond to a suggestion that the LIV and PGA Tour will face off in a Ryder Cup-style event in the near future.
One Twitter user raised the prospect of Mickelson and Tiger Woods serving as captains if such a competition took place.

Former NFL running back Danny Woodhead mentioned that he would be in favor of hosting the event.
“Simply! And that’s what I’m here for!” he wrote in response to a tweet proposing the contest.
Woodhead has made a name for himself on the amateur golf course, qualifying for the 2022 US Open.

Mickelson has been actively responding on Twitter throughout the week and appears to have seen an opportunity to share his thoughts on the potential matchup.
“It sounds great, but we would dominate them so much and it would be over so quickly that TV would have to fill an hour of dead time. So it’s not happening at this point,” Mickelson said.
Since its inception, LIV has attracted some of the world’s most renowned golfers.
Dustin Johnson, Cameron Smith, Sergio Garcia and Brooks Koepka have all left the PGA Tour for LIV.
But the PGA Tour has offered additional incentives for players to stay, including boosting purses at several tournaments over the last year.
