"Lefty" Says He'll Play Golf in Memphis

Lefty is Heading to Memphis to play in the St. Jude Classic Golf Tournament.

Phil Mickelson announced on his web site Monday, he'll be here for the event in June.

Mickelson is the Number-2 rated Golfer in the World, behind only Tiger Woods.

His announcement gives the Tournament a big boost, as it searches for Title Sponsorship in the wake of the Stanford Financial Disaster.

Mickelson last played in Memphis in 2001.

The St. Jude Classic is set for June 11th through the 14th at the TPC at Southwind.
