Phil Mickelson continues to count the cost of his inflammatory comments about the PGA Tour and a rival, Saudi Arabia-backed breakaway league by being dropped as the host of The American Express PGA Tour event in La Quinta, California.

In addition to Mickelson not returning as host in January 2023, the Mickelson Foundation will no longer serve as the charitable arm of the event. Mickelson has served as tournament host since 2020 while the foundation's contract was due to run through 2024.
