Mickelson came up short again over the weekend at the major golf tournament, which was held in Pebble Beach, Calif. He finished tied for 52nd and shot a four-over-par in the competition.
“I really don't have many more chances. Probably have to come to the realization I'm not going to win the U.S. Open,” the 49-year-old golfer told reporters at the Travelers Championship, according to Golf Channel.
The future sites of the U.S. Open don’t exactly give him the edge.
In 2020, the U.S. Open will be held at Winged Foot in New York where he collapsed toward the end of the final round and ended up finishing in second place. In 2021, the tournament moves to Torrey Pines in California and Brookline in Massachusetts the year after.
