Phil Mickelson looking forward to 2008 season

Phil Mickelson is "looking forward" to the 2008 season and is excited about his chances.

The American left hander made a strong finish to 2007 putting his wrist injury behind him to secure a maiden win outside the United States at The HSBC Championship in Shanghai.

The former US Masters champion is excited by the prototype Calloway irons which helped him to victory in China and he told his website “I’ve never hit my irons better, I’m looking forward to 2008.”

Despite the damaged wrist, Mickelson still managed to wrestle the world number two ranking from Jim Furyk but the injury still rankled.

“This year I won four tournaments, which was great, but I also lost two play-offs.

"After I won the Players Championship I thought I was poised for a great summer but then I injured my wrist and essentially lost the opportunity really even to contend in a major for the rest of the year.”

Mickelson will return to action at The Buick Invitational in late January after a lengthy break.

“Taking two months off sounds like a long time but I’ll have to be fresh and ready to go when the 2008 season starts because I’ll play five in a row starting in San Diego,” added Mickelson.
