The Masters champion will start his season on Thursday at the Abu Dhabi Championship along with top-ranked Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell, Retief Goosen and Martin Kaymer in the opening leg of the European Tour’s desert swing.

Mickelson says “my goal this year is to have the year I expected 2010 to be. With the exception of the Masters, it wasn’t the year I had hoped for.”
