Phil Mickelson underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia on Oct. 19, a source close to Mickelson told GOLF.com.
According to an article from Golf.com, Mickelson had the procedure three days after the conclusion of the season-opening Safeway Open in Napa, Calif.
“The only thing I know is that the surgery went well,” said the source, who requested anonymity.
When reached for comment by Golf.com Sunday afternoon, Mickelson’s spokesperson, T.R. Reinman, declined to comment.
The Golf.com source said Mickelson is recovering but wouldn’t comment on how long the 46-year-old would be out. The recovery time following sports hernia surgery varies but is typically four to six weeks.
