Wicked Rude: LIV XIV ready for a traditional Boston welcome


AP Sports Writer

Phil Mickelson is the biggest name among the golfers who accepted the rich payday from LIV Golf. He says he doesn’t know if his fans will stick with him. But he expects things to be lively at The Country Club and that will energize him as he attempts to win the U.S. Open for the first time.
