Phil Mickelson’s blog states this press release:

SCOTTSDALE, Az. (Jan. 21, 2008) – Phil Mickelson’s Buick Invitational press conference, scheduled for 10:30 tomorrow morning at Torrey Pines, has been postponed indefinitely.

After a visit with a San Diego doctor this morning Mickelson was confined to bed for two days with a respiratory ailment. His immediate goal is to be well enough to play in the Wednesday pro-am so that he can compete in his first event of the season.

Mickelson has been plagued by heavy congestion, shortness of breath and fatigue since October. It’s unclear whether the condition was caused by working in the smoky debris on his property following the wildfires that devastated Mickelson’s neighborhood, or by the illness he developed immediately after that in Singapore. He managed to win the HSBC Champions the following week in Shanghai but has not felt 100 percent since then. Mickelson’s condition worsened over the weekend and the doctor gave his order this morning.
