This is sweet redemption for Phil Mickelson after coming second or tied for second for the 6th time 1 month ago at the U.S. Open he shoots an amazing 66 5 under par to take the British Open.
Phil has had his share of final round flops but today he came up big while no one else did and that's what makes this 66 even more special. All the other leaders struggled but Mickelson owned this final round and he richly deserves his 5th major championship. And to do it at age 43 with the great depth on the worldwide golf tours and todays leaderboard must make this major title extra sweet for Lefty.
On a side note to win the Scottish Open and British Open in back to back weeks is astounding especially for a 43 year old who had not won in Europe for 20 years until last week.
