SINGAPORE (AP) – Phil Mickelson says he's itching to compete again at this week's $6 million Singapore Open, to show off the fruits of his efforts in home practice sessions to improve his game.

The American, who at No. 11 is the highest-ranked player in the event, has yet to win in Singapore in four attempts. Mickelson last won a tournament in April at the Shell Houston Open.

Last year's U.S. Open winner Graeme McDowell is another of the leading contenders in an event which had to compete with this week's Australian Open and subsequent President's Cup to attract the world's top players.
