Phil Mickelson Wins THE PLAYERS Championship

Playing on one of the most difficult courses in golf, Phil Mickelson captured the title of the 2007 PLAYERS Championship. He was the only player without a round over par for the entire week. Lefty finished today with a 69 and a two shot victory over Sergio Garcia, who finished Sunday with four consecutive birdies. Mickelson made bogey on the 18th hole during the final day of play; his only only bogey in 27 holes of play.
Mickelson takes home $1.6 million for his first PLAYERS victory. He is now #2 on the money list and #2 on the FedEx Cup points list.

Sean O'Hair, who played with Mickelson, struggled to control his emotions and dropped two balls in the water on the 17th hole. With two balls in the drink, O'Hair found a quadruple bogey to end his chances of victory.

Woods finally put together a good round today, shooting a 67 and finishing tied for 37th place.

Mickelson admitted his last three weeks he has been playing well, with two 3rd place finishes and today's win. When asked about O'Hair's play on the 17th, Mickelson said he thought O'Hair played well in the clutch, having held on to that point.
