The U.S. Open is coming to Pinehurst in June and Phil Mickelson is eager to play and test the changes made recently to the famed No. 2 course.

The problem for Mickelson, however, is he can’t get a tee time.

“I’ve tried to get down there three times now and the course has been booked (each time),” Mickelson said. “They won’t let me out there. So I don’t know when I’ll get down there.”

Mickelson was pressed on how a player of his stature wouldn’t be able to get on at Pinehurst.

“Well, I can, I just don’t want to go out with 200 people on the course and I usually go when it’s closed,” Mickelson said. “It will be closed a few weeks prior to the (Open) and I’ll go then.”
