Phil Mickelson has health issues.
Lefty said he was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis that causes his immune system to attack his joints and produces intense pain that makes it difficult to walk.
“I wasn’t able to move and was a little bit concerned,” Mickelson said.
Weekly shots have brought the condition under control, and Phil said he's almost back to normal.
He practiced at Whistling Straights Tuesday for this week’s PGA Championship. Then talked with the media after his practice round and made it clear he's feeling fine.
“I’ve had some great doctors and things have been looking great and long-term there shouldn’t be any issues,” he said.
“It’s very treatable. The medicine I’ve been taking has been very helpful,” he said noting that he feels “90-percent.”
