Phil Mickelson, who fell out of the top 50 in the world for the first time since Nov. 28, 1993, faces long odds to make Tiger Woods’ Presidents Cup team, which will be announced this week.

That can only boost much-needed interest in women’s golf in the U.S. Like it or not, Christina Kim does her job as a competitor in protecting the field in the LPGA Q-Series.
