Phil Mickelson played terrific golf on the final day of the British Open, while those with lower scores faltered. Lefty wins!
Phil birdied the 18th to finish at 3 under par.
Beginning the day, Lee Westwood had a two shot lead. Hunter Mahan and Tiger Woods were in the chase.
Tiger continued to play poorly on the final day of a major. (I predicted some time back that he will forever stay at 14 major wins.)
Woods was playing with Masters Champion Adam Scott, who took the lead from a sliding Westwood.
Mickelson, playing several holes ahead, continued to make great shots. His final day tallied a 66.
Lefty is one of golf’s most popular players. Today he won the British Open.
