Phil Mickelson says treatment of his arthritic condition has improved and he is ready to resume the fight for golf's No.1 ranking.
Heading into the HSBC Champions starting Thursday, the American said he has been coping with psoriatic arthritis since the week before the U.S. Open, but a new medicine has made him "feel terrific. I cannot believe the difference."
Mickelson was thought the man most likely to overtake Tiger Woods as golf's No. 1 but instead it was England's Lee Westwood who took the top spot.
Mickelson said his mediocre performances of late means "I don't feel like I've earned it" but with the top ranking now up for grabs he said it was "fun to be part of it and have a chance."
