The 2014 U.S. Open will be June 12-15 this year, and as the month of May starts to wind down,  we are quickly approaching the prestigious major. Every big name on the tour, besides Tiger Woods, will be making the trek down to Pinehurst Resort and it will be one of the most one for he biggest fantasy golf tournaments of the season.

Unfortunately, one superstar that is always struggled during the U.S Open has been Phil Mickelson. Most fantasy fans avoid Mickelson at the U.S. Open, simply because he has never won the prestigious major and it has continued to haunt him.

Here is a look at his history at the U.S. Open:

Despite the fact that Lefty has never won the major, he continually shows up and plays well. He has six career top-10 finishes, including a T2 in 2013. Mickelson may be a long-shot to win it all, but he will once again be a safe bet to crack the top-10.

Mickelson has quietly started to turn around his miserable season as well, as he has now cracked the top-19 in four of the last seven tournaments he finished this season. He is turning it on at the perfect time and the veteran will be ready to go by the time the Open comes rolling around.

Don’t count out Lefty this year down in North Carolina, because he may surprise you.
