Prognosis good after Mickelson reveals arthritis

Email

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Forget chasing the No. 1 ranking. Phil Mickelson was more worried about being able to get out of bed.

Mickelson revealed Tuesday he has psoriatic arthritis, which causes his immune system to attack his joints and tendons and produced such intense pain he couldn't walk. He noticed the first symptoms five days before the U.S. Open, and the pain eventually got so bad he made a visit to the Mayo Clinic.
