Phil Mickelson Wins Masters Tournament

Ad Feedback

Golfer Phil Mickelson is once more sporting a green jacket after emerging triumphant at this year's Masters Tournament.

The lefty rolled to a 5-under par 67 on Sunday to win his third Masters title. Birdies on the 12th and 13th holes sealed his victory. He then finished strong with a final birdie on 18.

It was an emotional win for Mickelson whose mother and wife are both battling breast cancer.

Although his spouse, Amy Mickelson, had been absent from the green since she was diagnosed with the disease 11 months ago, she and the couple's three children were present for Sunday's victory.

"I wasn't sure if she was going to be there," Mickelson said, tightly holding his wife's hand. "In the last year, we've been through a lot and it's been tough. And to be on the other end and feel this kind of jubilation is incredible."

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods tied for a respectable fourth with K.J. Choi.

"I gave myself a chance. I didn't hit the ball very good on the weekend, didn't putt well,'' Woods said. "(But) overall, it was a good week."
