Phil Mickelson looks VERY DIFFERENT as he rocks up at LIV Golf Draft evening

Making his first public appearance in four months, Phil Mickelson has touched down at the LIV Golf Invitational London rocking a very different look. 

Mickelson, who has accepted a gigantic $200 million offer to play in the Saudi-funded LIV Golf series, was unveiled by LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman as one of the 12 team captains teeing it up at Centurion Club in St Albans this week. 

As you can see from the below snaps on social media, Mickelson has grown a moustache and has opted for slightly longer hair. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mickelson is one of 12 team captains in the inaugural LIV Golf event and each team consists of four players.

The team name Mickelson has chosen is 'Hy Flyers' and it will be made up of himself, Justin Harding, Ratchanon Chantananuwat and Chase Koepka following the Draft. 

Dustin Johnson, who sent shock waves through the sport by not only committing to LIV Golf but also by resigning from the PGA Tour this week, is another team captain. The two-time major champion has decided to call his team '4 Aces'.

 

 

 

What are the LIV Golf team names? 

Dustin Johnson - 4 Aces

Graeme McDowell - Niblicks

Ian Poulter - Majesticks

Kevin Na - Iron Heads

Louis Oosthuizen - Stinger

Martin Kaymer - Cleeks

Peter Uihlein - Crushers

Phil Mickelson - Hi Flyers

Sergio Garcia - Fire Balls

Sihwan Kim - Smash

Talor Gooch - Torque

Wade Ormsby - Punch

 

 

There is an individual tournament for the 48 players competing, where the winner takes home a whopping $4 million. 

Even if you come last, you will still pick up a cheque for $120,000.

And then there is $3 million for the team that finishes in first place, which is split equally among the team of four players.

The team that finishes second gets $1.5 million, and the team that ends up in third receives $500,000.
