Phil Mickelson on the 18th hole at Pebble Beach on Monday morning, when he clinched his first PGA Tour win in nearly a year. And then the spotlight will settle like a laser beam on Mickelson , who played his first major as a pro at the 1992 U . S . Open at Pebble Beach .

Phil Mickelson has won every major championship except for the U . S . Open . The now 48-year-old has finished second or tied for second a total of six times in his career. At his age, it seems like a daunting task for him to complete the career grand slam with so much young talent on the PGA Tour

Phil Mickelson and Jim Nantz gave the world a gift Wednesday.

Mickelson, in the lead-up to the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, visited Nantz’s backyard replica of the California course and drained a hole-in-one with the broadcaster’s iconic voice describing the events.

Wedge drop.

Mickelson is hoping it becomes reality next door at the real Pebble Beach, where he’s never won a U.S. Open. It’s the last tournament the lefty needs to complete a career Grand Slam and he’s finished runner-up there six times.

Mickelson on USGA ahead of U.S. Open: 'They don't know how to control themselves'

Mickelson on USGA ahead of U.S. Open: 'They don't know how to control themselves' On Thursday following his first round at the Memorial, Phil Mickelson didn’t have any interest in pulling his punches about the USGA ahead of next month's U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.

With an eagle and three birdies in his first seven holes at Pebble Beach Nantz has a stone with the names of everyone who has made a hole -in-one in his backyard. Now that Mickelson has formally joined Pebble Beach royalty with his record-tying fifth AT&T title, the urge is to forecast his U . S . Open

Philip Alfred Mickelson (born June 16, 1970), nicknamed Lefty, is an American professional golfer. He has won 44 events on the PGA Tour, including five major championships: three Masters titles

Last week he announced a change in his equipment, going with two drivers. One is to hit “cute cuts on the fairway” and another to “hit bombs.” And on Tuesday he shared a golf tip from the 10th hole of Pebble Beach, even taking a shot at his “weekend off” when he missed the cut at the Memorial.
