UPDATED: Mickelson Shares Short-game Secrets at Alotian

1 min read

Two-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson appeared Tuesday at the Jackson T. Stephens Charitable Golf Tournament at The Alotian Club.

Before the tournament began under cloudy conditions at the exclusive golf club in Roland off Highway 10, Mickelson conducted an hour-long golf clinic for children from Arkansas First Tee chapters and the Little Rock Air Force Base.
Mickelson’s clinic focused on chip shots and other parts of his short game. Children, club members and guests were able to ask questions and pose for pictures with the left-handed golf pro, who flew into Little Rock from Dallas early Tuesday morning.
The tournament’s inaugural event in 2006 attracted participants from across the nation and raised more than $1 million for nonprofit organizations in Arkansas, including the First Tee chapters of Little Rock and Fort Smith, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences at Little Rock, the Arkansas Arts Center, and Episcopal Collegiate School in Little Rock.
Last year’s celebrity guest was another Masters champ, Tiger Woods.
Warren Stephens, the club’s founder and president, hosted the event at the club’s 18th green. The tournament was scheduled to begin after Mickelson’s clinic.
