HUMBLE, Texas (AP) -- Phil Mickelson says on his website that he's recovered and ready to play in this week's Houston Open.

The four-time major winner, who withdrew from last week's Texas Open after pulling a muscle in his right side, says he'll play in the $6.4-million event after two days of "light practice" at Augusta National, site of next week's Masters.

Mickelson, who won the Houston Open in 2011, didn't play in the pro-am Wednesday. That fueled speculation that he might withdraw, though tournament director Steve Timms said Mickelson was already scheduled to take part in a sponsor dinner instead.

Mickelson's return to the Golf Club of Houston -- formerly known as Redstone Golf Club -- highlights a stellar field that features the winners of 34 major championships.
