Phil Mickelson wanted to get ready for the upcoming majors in the world of golf, and to do that he was going to have to do something he didn’t really want to do. At least yet, that is. After missing the field for the FedexCup Playoffs’ second round, Mickelson decided he would go to the PGA Tour Champions tour- the tour for players 50 or over. So, making his debut this week at Ozarks National, Mickelson made a very impressive debut.
He would shoot -22 overall for the tournament to become the 22nd player in the tour’s history to win on his debut. It was the lowest 54-hole score ever recorded for a debut, too, giving him an incredible status. He led all the way as well, shooting a 61 on Monday that was followed by a 66 on Tuesday and a 64 on Wednesday. Mickelson had just turned 50 recently, and definitely looked like the youngest man on the course this past week.
