the 18th green when he won the 1967 Mickelson reached out with his 3wood and tapped it touch for some good he Mickelson delivered anoth er dramatic finish to his sec ond major title flop ping a chip

straight A putting touch that been so true the first three rounds began to abandon He returned Monday morning for what amounted to a fourhole I had to gut it out and just find a way to make some and find a way to make a cou ple of Mickelson Im just ecstatic that I was able to get it Mickelson closed with a 2 over 72 and finished at 4under It was his fourth victory of the matching Woods and Vijay

to remember some of the shots I hit as a kid in my back I hit it and the ball popped up and it rolled The winning putt wasnt anything like the 18foot birdie he made last year to win the There was no need to jump for joy this Expectations are a little dif Mickelson said with a coy referring in part to the length of the and the 4 3 3 2 2 1 1 1 1 E E E E E fact he had already shed the label as the best to have never won a But this one was Hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy enabled Mickelson to salvage what had been a sour season in the He came within five shots of the win ning all the majors last sea and this year wasnt ever Before I even won I had never really doubted that I would eventually do Mickelson And having not won a major or come dose this yeas I didnt doubt the fact that it would happen I just didnt know Im very fortunate and very pleased and excited that it was this Davis Love III started the final round tied with Mickel son for the He still had a chance to catch him when they returned for the final four but he let birdie chances get away by either leaving himself too far from the flag or missing putts he so desper ately He shot 74 and tied for fourth with Singh had an outside chance to become only the second repeat PGA champi on in the strokeplay but he missed a 10foot par putt on the 16th when play bogeyed the 18th and wound up with a 74 to tie for Dogs do and
