    Phil Mickelson and his golf course design firm have been selected to renovate the North Course at Torrey Pines the City of San Diego has announced Monday.

    The renovation will include 18 new greens, renovated bunkers and tees, improved irrigation and possibly some new tees for tournament play.

    The pros use it two days a year. Please don't ruin it for the rest of us.

    It should be pointed out, Phil and his group had nothing to do with the South course remodel and he hasn't won there since the remodel.

    The work will start in early 2015. They figure it will cost $7 million.
