Mickelson claims first Open title with 66
GULLANE, Scotland (AP) — Phil Mickelson wondered if he’d ever win this venerable trophy, the one he proudly posed with on Muirfield’s 18th hole as photographers snapped away and fans chanted his name.
Raised on the lush, manicured courses of America, Lefty crafted a game that required one to look toward the sky. Booming drives. Soaring iron shots. Chips and wedges that floated, then spun improbably to a stop.
Beautiful to watch — except when Mickelson was trying to win the claret jug.
