Lefty joins brother’s ASU staff

Phil Mickelson has taken an interim assistant coaching post at Arizona State, his alma mater, where his brother, Tim, is the head golf coach.

The position allows Mickelson, a five-time major champion, to spend time talking to, playing golf with and coaching team members while also calling potential recruits.

As an Arizona State alum and a program donor, Mickelson would be otherwise prohibited from those tasks because of NCAA rules.

Lefty, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame with 42 PGA Tour victories in his career, captured NCAA individual titles for the Sun Devils in 1989, 1990 and 1992.

Tim Mickelson has had an opening on his staff since September, when Joe Prince left the school.
