Phil Mickelson only realized a few days ago that he mathematically is eliminated from qualifying for the Presidents Cup team.

Now he has one last chance to make an impression as a captain's pick and keep alive the longest streak in American team golf. Mickelson has played on every Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup team for 20 consecutive years.

Mickelson says he wants to be on the team for the Oct. 8-11 matches in South Korea.

He says he will have to have a great week at the Deutsche Bank Championship to give U.S. captain Jay Haas a reason to pick him. Mickelson is on the verge of going two straight years without a win for the first time in his career.
