Phil Mickelson’s Win at 2013 British Open Creates New Chapter in Legacy
Phil Mickelson came out of nowhere for a roaring finish and his fifth major win at the 2013 British Open on Sunday to quiet the critics and validate his Hall of Fame selection a year ago.
Mickelson was two over par heading into the final round and was still one over heading into the back nine on Sunday at Muirfield Golf Club when he bogied the 10th hole. Needless to say, no one expected anything more than a fifth-place finish after that and all the “here it goes again” murmurs about Phil began rumbling through the gallery. But then Lefty absolutely caught fire, birdying four of the last six holes, including the final two for the win.
In fact, Mickelson was actually the only player to finish under par for the tournament, coming in three strokes ahead of runner-up Henrik Stenson, who shot an even par over four rounds. After a rough first round on Thursday, Mickelson said the conditions at Muirfield were almost “unplayable,” so the fact he had such an incredible round on Sunday is even more impressive given the circumstances.
We see you, Lefty!
