A U.S. Open victory would make Mickelson only the sixth golfer to win the grand slam of U.S. Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and U.S. PGA Championship, joining Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.
In a statement, the USGA said: "Phil called to say because of the timing of his daughter's high school graduation, he would likely not be able to play in the US Open at Erin Hills".
Mickelson has not officially withdrawn, but it seems only a first-round weather washout or a late date change of the graduation ceremony could allow him to participate.
Mickelson, who has played in 26 U.S. Opens, was also runner up at the 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009 and 2013 events.
"Mike and I both agree there's no sense in [officially withdrawing] right now".
"You never know. Maybe something freaky will happen ... something happens with the commencement time-wise". It would have to be something unforeseen. "I wanted to make sure that they had enough notice to accommodate it".
"My daughter is the school president. It wasn't really something that we discussed, because it really wasn't much of a decision".
This is the same daughter who almost caused Mickelson to miss the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, where he carried a beeper with him and pledged to leave in the middle of the tournament even if he were leading.
