RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The professional golfer is looking to defend his title as the Dominion Energy Charity Classic champion this week.

Phil Mickelson will be playing at the Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course Oct. 21-24. The Classic is the first event in the three-tournament playoff for the Charles Schwab Cup.

Mickelson will be joined by other golfing legends like Ernie Els, John Daly and Jim Furyk.
