Fancy golf and lunch with Phil Mickelson for $250k?
Fancy lunch and a hit of golf with one of the icons of the game…‘fabulous’ Phil Mickelson? Fork out a cool $250,000 and you’re a good chance of securing just that.
That’s because the star left-hander has offered his services for a round of golf and lunch afterwards to the highest bidder at an auction at charitybuzz.com.

With just a few days to go, the bidding has already reached $100,000 with the beneficiary being Operation Healing Forces.
The package included a round of golf with Mickelson for the winner as well as two guests at his home course in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
The price of lunch is included…just in case that would help ‘seal the deal’.
Mickelson feels his game is on the way back at the moment although the current world No 31 has not won since the 2013 British Open, despite a string of superlative efforts, including that close defeat to Henrik Stenson in last year’s British Open.
“I’m going to win again…it’s just a matter of time,” said Mickelson.
“It’s going to happen soon because I’m starting to play well enough to do it.”
A separate charitybuzz.com auction for The First Tee included items like two badges for the 2018 Masters, a three-year membership to Le Golf National, site of the 2018 Ryder Cup, a round with Morgan Hoffman at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma and some other worthwhile – and tempting auction items as well.
