San Antonio - Phil Mickelson has decided to play the Texas Open next week.

That means the three-time Masters champion would play both Texas events before he arrives at Augusta National for the first major of the year.

Mickelson has not played the Texas Open since 1992.

It is on the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.

It's the second straight year the Texas Open received a top player at the last minute.

Rory McIlroy played last year and was runner-up to Martin Laird.

Mickelson prefers to play just before majors.

He previously has said he would play the Houston Open, which is the week before the Masters.

He had been undecided on the Texas Open.
