Jimmy Walker: I don't know why Mickelson 'doesn't have a real caddie'

  Jimmy Walker: I don't know why Mickelson 'doesn't have a real caddie' After disappointing rounds of 79 and 74 at the PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson crashed out of a major for the second time since parting ways with long-time caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay. While there's certainly a multitude of reasons for the veteran star's struggles, the switch to younger brother Tim doesn't seem to be going as well as hoped. It's something defending PGA champion Jimmy Walker noticed through 36 holes with Mickelson.

Mickelson was among the notable players who missed the cut at Oakmont Country Club. McIlroy, a four-time major winner, is seeking his first major since the 2014 PGA Championship.

For the first time since 1995, the PGA Championship won't feature Phil Mickelson on the weekend.

The 47-year-old veteran missed the cut at the event for only the second time in his career after struggling to rounds of 79 and 74 around a challenging Quail Hollow track. That left him well off the cut-line and crashing out of his second straight major championship.

He wasn't the only big name to struggle as Masters champion Sergio Garcia also won't be playing the weekend after two rounds of 75. Last year's winner Jimmy Walker improved his first-round 81 by 12 strokes with a 69, but won't be around to defend his title this weekend in Charlotte.

King Felix to miss 3-4 weeks with shoulder bursitis .
Felix Hernandez, the ailing Seattle Mariners ace who landed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with right biceps tendinitis, is expected to miss three-to-four weeks after being diagnosed with bursitis in his throwing shoulder, general manager Jerry Dipoto announced Tuesday. Hernandez, who missed nearly eight weeks earlier this year due to shoulder inflammation, experienced renewed arm discomfort during his July 31 start in Texas, prompting him to fly back to Seattle for an examination by team doctors. Now, the surging Mariners - one game back of the second American League wild-card spot - will likely be without him until September.
