Mickelson looked magnificent in his first tournament on the circuit
Phil Mickelson made PGA Tour Champions history this week in a win at the Charles Schwab Series at Ozarks National. Lefty carded a three-round score of 191 that tied for the lowest 54-hole score ever in his debut outing on the Champions Tour. He becomes the 20th player in the senior circuit's history to win in their debut.
Mickelson's final score of 22 under was buoyed by an opening-round 61 in which he drained 11 birdies and paced the field early with what turned out to be the best round by any golfer in the field all week. Carding a 64 and 66 on Tuesday and Wednesday aided him in finishing off the wire-to-wire win with a four-stroke cushion over Tim Petrovic.
Hard to believe that Phil is old enough to play on the Champions Tour
