Phil Mickelson, a LIV Golf member, has asked people to “put personal feelings aside” in a Twitter post on Wednesday.
Mickelson, 53, is one of the most active golfers on social media.
Over the past few months, he’s used the platform to defend fellow LIV player Talor Gooch – who had discovered he hadn’t qualified for the US Open – as well as discuss his thoughts on the LIV Golf/PGA Tour rivalry.
And after missing last week’s cut at the US Open – the one tournament he needs to complete the career Grand Slam – Mickelson was back on the social media site.
This time, the 45-time PGA Tour winner was asking his followers to put their feelings aside… to focus on an instructional video.
“Let’s put personal feelings a side for a moment and prioritize improving your short game,” Mickelson wrote above a video of him explaining how players can improve their chipping.

Since LIV Golf began, Mickelson has not been able to register the same results that he did during his long-time PGA Tour career.
In seven events so far this season, his best finish has been 15th at the Singapore event. His best finish since joining the league was eighth during last season’s Chicago tournament.
After taking a month off, LIV Golf is set to return at the end of June with the Valderrama event.
It will be its first event since the PGA Tour announced it would be creating a new, for-profit entity with the DP World Tour and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF) which funds LIV Golf.
