Poll: Should Phil Mickelson Have Been Picked for the Presidents Cup?

September 9, 2015

There’s already some controversy when it comes to the Presidents Cup, and it centers around Phil Mickelson.

On Tuesday U.S. captain Jay Haas used one of his two captain’s picks to select Mickelson, putting Lefty on the team for the 11th time. He used the other pick on his son, Bill Haas, who was the highest-ranked player not to automatically qualify.

Thing is, Mickelson has just four top 10s in the past two years and hasn’t won since July 2013. With the addition of Bill Haas, the U.S. has the top 11 players based on points followed by an outlier in Mickelson, who is 30th.

So was keeping Mickelson around, perhaps for his experience and leadership, the right choice? Or should other players–JB Holmes, Brooks Koepka, among others–have been picked? Cast your vote below!
