MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson will be making a trip to Memphis this summer.

The lefty committed to the FedEx St. Jude Classic for 2016.

The five-time major champion makes a habit of playing the week before the U.S. Open, so the Classic’s positioning right before the major makes it advantageous for Mickelson to compete.

It will be Mickelson’s fourth straight Memphis event and sixth overall.

The crowd favorite 45-year-old shot a final round of 65 last year. He made a run at the title, but finished tied at eight-under. He finished second in 2013.

The FedEx St. Jude Classic runs June 9-12 at TPC at Southwind.
