Phil Mickelson to design new $2 million practice facility for University of San Diego golf team (

Phil Mickelson will design a new $2 million golf training facility for the University of San Diego, Athletic Director Bill McGillis announced on Monday.

The Purcell Family Short-Game Practice Facility will be located on campus and feature a one-acre natural turf short-game area fit with a large putting green, practice bunkers and fairway and rough area so players can practice any shot they’d face in competition.

“As a result of the generosity of the Purcell family, and a strong commitment from the University of San Diego, I could not be more thrilled to be designing a state-of-the art on-campus golf practice facility for the Toreros,” said Phil Mickelson via a release. “The University of San Diego holds a special place in the hearts of the Mickelson family, and I’m excited to partner with (head coach Chris) Riley in developing something truly special for the young men in the USD program.”
