Mickelson to stop using club:

Phil Mickelson won't be using the Ping Eye2 wedge that led a fellow player to accuse him of "cheating," even though he hopes others will use the controversial club to keep attention on what he calls a ridiculous rule.

"I won't be playing that wedge. My point has been made," Mickelson said Wednesday on the eve of his two-time title defense at Riviera in Los Angeles.

Watson also said Wednesday that Woods should clean up his on-course behavior in order to be considered among the true greats of the game.

Woods is on an indefinite break since his car crash Nov. 27 that fueled sordid tales of extramarital affairs.

"I'll let the cat out of the bag," Watson said ahead of the Dubai Desert Classic in the United Arab Emirates. "Tiger has to take ownership of what he has done. He must get his personal life in order. I think that's what he's trying to do. And when he comes back, he has to show some humility to the public.

"I would come out and I would do an interview with somebody and say, 'You know what? …
