Phil Mickelson reiterates desire to keep PGA Tour membership amidst LIV golf controversy

International golf star Phil Mickelson said on Wednesday he sees no reason to voluntarily surrender his PGA Tour membership as he prepares to feature in the opening event of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, saying he's "earned" a lifetime exemption that allows him to keep his tour membership without playing in the minimum number of tour events a year.
