How Phil Did It
ON SUNDAY AT MUIRFIELD, IT WAS 43-year-old Phil Mickelson who shot the round of his life, a scintillating 66, to win the British Open for the first time, his fifth major. Not Tiger Woods, or Lee Westwood, or Adam Scott, or Hunter Mahan, or Henrik Stenson.
ESPN's Scott Van Pelt and Andy North break down some keys to Lefty's surprising victory after the crushing disappointment at Merion in the U.S. Open a month ago.
No doubt, if you watched yesterday's action at Muirfield, you witnessed one of the great final rounds in major championship history.
It was one of the few British Open finales I've missed in the last quarter century. I was touring New York City with my family. I did see "Newsies" on Broadway, though, also a great show.
