Phil Mickelson makes fun of the legal battle involving Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell ahead of the Ryder Cup.

Phil Mickelson has aimed a light-hearted dig at Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell ahead of the Ryder Cup following their recent legal dispute.

McIlroy and McDowell are currently on opposite sides of a lawsuit involving the management company Horizon Sports Management, and Mickelson took the opportunity to bring up the subject in his press conference on Wednesday.

"Not only are we able to play together, we also don't litigate against each other," the 44-year-old joked with reporters. "That's a real plus, I feel."

McDowell revealed earlier this week that he thought his relationship with McIlroy had changed, but insists that the lawsuit would not change how he felt about playing alongside the world number one.
