[July 29, 2009]  AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Phil Mickelson is returning to the PGA Tour, deciding to play the Bridgestone Invitational next week, his first tournament since the U.S. Open.

InsuranceMickelson has been out of action for nearly two months, tending to his wife, who is battling breast cancer. He tied for second at the U.S. Open in June and his wife had surgery two weeks later.

He also learned that his mother has breast cancer and is being treated.

Mickelson's decision, announced in a release Tuesday by tournament organizers, is a good sign he also will play the following week in the PGA Championship at Hazeltine.
