Phil Mickelson could be donning his golf clothing more regularly as he is reportedly upping his preparation for the upcoming Masters.
The world number six won the Masters last April and in a bid to boost his performance this year has signed up to compete in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and could also take part in the Houston Open.
"I need more competitive golf - I've got some work to do," Mickelson said, when asked about his preparation for the tournament.
"I'm not shooting the scores I need to shoot. I'm not concerned with the way I'm hitting it or any particular element of my game, but I'm not shooting the scores," he added.
Mickelson has not won an event since the 2010 Masters and finished 55th at the recent WGC Cadillac Championship.
Speaking to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Mickelson recently said he still feels the thrill of winning the Masters last year, adding that it had been a childhood dream come true.
