About Phil Mickelson
Philip Alfred Mickelson was born on June 16, 1970, in San Diego, California, to parents Philip Mickelson and Mary Santos. His father was an airline pilot and former naval aviator, and his maternal grandfather, Alfred Santos, was a caddie at Pebble Beach Golf Links who introduced Phil to golf as a child. Even though he is right-handed, he learned to play golf left-handed by watching his father swing.
Under his father’s instruction, Mickelson began playing golf before he started school. They played together several times a week thanks to Phil Sr.’s work schedule as a commercial pilot. Young Phil practiced his creative short game in a practice area in their backyard in San Diego. He graduated from the University of San Diego High School in 1988 after spending his childhood in San Diego and Scottsdale, Arizona. Mickelson has ancestry from Portugal, Sweden, and Sicily.
Mickelson received a full golf scholarship to attend Arizona State University where he quickly found success competing at the college level. He won three individual championships at the NCAA and was selected as the Outstanding College Golfer of the Year, earning three Haskins Awards in 1990, 1991, and 1992. Over his college career, he won 16 tournaments and became the second-ever collegiate golfer to earn first-team All-American honors four years in a row. He graduated from college in June 1992.
Professional Golf Career
Mickelson is a successful golfer both on and off the course. He won his first PGA tour event, the Northern Telecom Open, in 1991 as an amateur. He skipped the PGA tour’s qualifying process by winning the 1991 Tucson and became a professional golfer after graduating from college.
Between 1999 and 2003, Mickelson had 17 top-ten finishes and six second- or third-place finishes but did not win any major championships. However, in 2004, during his thirteenth year on the PGA tour, he won his first major championship. In 2016, Mickelson underwent two sports hernia surgeries, but he made a quick recovery and triumphantly returned to the game with a T-21 finish at the CareerBuilder Challenge.
In 2019, Mickelson won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, his 44th career title on the PGA Tour, and became the oldest winner of that event at 48 years old. However, in December 2019, he announced that he would miss the Waste Management Phoenix Open for the first time since 1989. Instead, he chose to play in the Saudi International golf tournament where he tied for third in February 2020.
Mickelson has won over 40 PGA events throughout his career, including four Major Championships – the 2004 Masters, the 2005 PGA Championship, 2006 Masters, and the 2010 Masters. Today, he is one of the best and most popular professional golfers in the world.
