Phil Mickelson's LIV Golf League team, HyFlyers GC will be strengthened by another name. Namely, it is Andy Ogletree. This great golfer won the Asian Tour's International Series Order of Merit in 2023. Phil Mickelson is happy to have such a promising golfer in his team. He emphasized that Ogletree was a golfer who always gave his best and aspired to become a top player.

"Andy is one of the most impressive young players in the game who has earned his spot on LIV. The work he has continued to put in and the resiliency he showed this past year in creating his own success was awesome to see. He makes the HyFlyers a contender next year and just as importantly, Andy fits in perfectly with everyone on the team."- Mickelson said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com!

Ogletree revealed in an interview with Sports Illustrated that he had several calls. The 25-year-old golfer had his doubts, but he knows LIV Golf and the players there well. Phil Mickelson convinced him that his team was the best option for development. Ogletree ultimately decided to join his team and is aiming for big things in the future.

"I started getting some phone calls and it was kind of like college recruiting all over again. A few teams wanted to meet and I had conversations with some of the captains and it followed from there. Since LIV Golf owns the teams the final contract had to be approved and all of this was navigated over the last few weeks.

I was in a fortunate situation being able to travel with LIV during the year. I was at every tournament as a reserve. I was seeing how every tournament works and the team dynamic and the support structure they put in place. I was able to ask a lot of questions and get opinions from different players. And I liked the way Phil went about things and to get that knowledge from one of the greatest of all time is an opportunity I couldn’t turn down."
