Phil Mickelson claims back to back wins on PGA Champions Tour
The five-time major champion won on his over-50s debut at the Charles Schwab Series in August and topped the leaderboard this week to become only the fourth player in history to win their first two PGA Tour Champions events.
Final Round Overview
Mickelson started the round three strokes behind overnight leader Mike Weir; however Weir soon found himself two behind after ending a run of pars with a bogey at the seventh. Mickelson followed birdies at the second and fourth with back-to-back birdies from the sixth.
Mickelson lost his ball off the tee on his way to a bogey at the par-five ninth, where Weir holed a four-foot birdie to reach the back nine in a share of the lead.
Weir edged back ahead again after a birdie at the 12th. However, a three putt at the 14th proved costly as Mickelson got up and down from the rough to birdie the 13th and make a two-putt gain at the driveable 15th.
Both players birdied the 16th to pull further clear of the field. On the last hole Mickelson would find the green in two shots and make a birdie with two putts; extending his winning margin.
An amazing final hole albatross saw Robert Karlsson jump inside the Top 10, while Jim Furyk – a two-time winner on the PGA Tour Champions this season – posted back-to-back eagles on his way to a three-under 69.
