Battle at Bighorn set to change course

This year will be the last "Battle at Bighorn,'' but not the last of Monday Night Golf.

The three-year run at Bighorn will end after Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus take on Sergio Garciaand Lee Trevino on July 29. Organizers plan to move the prime-time exhibition out of the California desert -- and into Phil Mickelson's neighborhood, of all places.

The tournament is expected to move to Twin Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe near San Diego, a private club that Mickelson joined when he moved last year.

That doesn't mean Lefty will be invited to play.

Woods and Mickelson are not regular pals and are unlikely to play with or against each other in silly-season events.

Woods is leaning toward skipping the World Cup this year in Mexico rather than being paired with Mickelson; Lefty has not played in Woods' year-end tournament ever since it moved to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif., two years ago.
