2013 Open Champion - Phil Mickelson - In The Bag
Carding birdies on four of the final six holes to match the low round for the tournament and claim his fifth major victory, Mickelson started the final round five strokes behind the leader and went on to win by three strokes. On the 71st hole, Mickelson used a Callaway X Hot 3Deep Fairway Wood off the tee and then again from the fairway – with 308 yards into the wind to the green -- to put himself in great position for an eventual birdie putt. Later, Mickelson noted, “Those two 3-woods were the two best shots of the week, to get it on that green. As I was walking up to the green, that was when I realised that this is very much my championship in my control.”
The win secured Mickelson his fifth Major title, his second win in as many weeks and marked the 49th overall professional victory of his storied career.
