10:31 am on 29 July 2009

World men's golf number two Phil Mickelson will make his return to the US PGA Tour at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational next week.

Mickelson has not played since he tied for second place at the U.S Open in June having taken the last six weeks off while his wife Amy and mother Mary were treated for breast cancer.

Amy Mickelson underwent surgery in Houston on July 1st while Mickelson's mother was operated on 10 days later at the same hospital.

The left-hander missed out on winning the U.S Open by two shots to Lucas Glover, tying second along with compatriots David Duval and Ricky Barnes.

Mickelson did not feature in this month's British Open.
