Merely a month after another heartbreak at the U.S. Open, Phil Mickelson played one of the greatest rounds of his storied career to win the British Open at Muirfield in Scotland.
Mickelson birdied four of his final six holes en dramatic fashion in route to shoot a 5-under-par 66 to win the first British Open of his career.
Lefty has spent most of his career in the shadow of Tiger Woods, and on a day most expected Woods to reclaim his championship form, Mickelson stole the spotlight. The beloved family man was the only player to finish under par.
