LIV Golf's biggest accomplishment, according to Phil Mickelson, might not be what the top brass at the breakaway tour will want to hear.
Mickelson will now turn his attention to LIV Golf Washington after competing in the 2023 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.
The rival league received a welcome credibility boost after Brooks Koepka claimed the fifth major championship of his career.
Mickelson was relatively quiet on the golf course and ultimately finished T-58 after posting rounds of 73, 72, 75 and 70 in Rochester.

The PGA of America didn't list Lefty for any media duties but that didn't stop him from sending a chilling warning to the PGA Tour going forward.
Mickelson emerged from his social media blackout this February and since then has been involved in some mud-slinging.
He'll continue to do so, he said, because he wants to hold everyone 'accountable' as he 'knows things others don't' that will apparently come out soon.
Our popcorn is already in the microwave.
Mickelson went further by explaining what, in his view, was LIV Golf's biggest accomplishment.

He told the Palm Beach Post:
Mickelson reportedly penned a deal worth approximately $200m.
Surely going forward LIV want to avoid talking about the money. Those at LIV Golf are clearly trying to alter perceptions of their tour.
After Talor Gooch won in Adelaide, the tour admitted to editing out Pat Perez's criticism of PGA Tour boss Jay Monahan.
"We are trying to avoid that kind of hostility in our press conferences," a spokesperson for LIV previously said.
The 52-year-old did concede that LIV is definitely more popular outside of the U.S., but urged people to have more of an open mind.
