INVERNESS, Scotland (AP) - Phil Mickelson is back for another go on a links course.

He plays the Scottish Open starting Thursday, a week before the British Open at Muirfield.

Just when he thought he'd finally understood the unique nature of links golf, Mickelson arrived at last year's British Open and missed the cut for the first time at a major in five years.

As he prepared to leave Lytham two days earlier than expected, he repeated: "I don't know what to say."

Any self-belief must be in short supply whenever he flies to Europe. He hasn't won there in 20 years, since a victory in a second-tier Challenge Tour event in Paris in which he narrowly beat Steve Elkington.

But links golf is something that continues to appeal to the American.
