PGA Championship 2019 Betting: Mickelson's Nervous, But Confident On His Talent

PGA Championship 2019 Betting

Although he's come up with positive results at this same venue before, Phil Mickelson is not in particularly high spirits for Bethpage Black course despite what his tweets show, and this is an essential factor when you're betting the PGA Championship

Mickelson finished as the runner-up at both the 2002 and 2009 editions of the US Open at this same Long Island venue, but this time around, the experienced player seems to be feeling a bit uneasy.

The main reason is that he missed the Wells Fargo Championship, and so he might be feeling that he needs a little more competition before Bethpage Black. “I'm nervous. I'm not excited about a missed cut, a week off, and then going into a major. That's not the best way to do it.” Mickelson said.

Mickelson had a good 2019 start, winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and tying for second place at the Desert Classic. With that said, the veteran golfer has missed three cuts and ended up with a poor record at the Masters.

Despite his nervousness, Mickelson hasn't lost faith in himself or his swing speed and seems confident that his game will improve by the time the Tournament tees off at Bethpage Black.

Mickelson is a PGA champ, getting the victory at Baltusrol back in 2005. With that said, the experienced golfer has just a single top 10 finish in his last ten tries, and he even missed the cut in his previous two appearances.

But according to Mickelson, his short-iron play is also getting better, and that, combined with his current speed level, will allow him to have better control, a factor that can help him improve his overall game.
