Phil Mickelson Biography

Phil Mickelson (known as lefty) was born in San Diego, California on the 16th June 1970 and was raised there and in Arizona. Although he is right-handed he swings with his left hand. He learned to play golf by watching his right-handed father swing and mirroring him. He attended Arizona State University on a golf scholarship. During his time there he became the face of amateur golf in the US, capturing three NCAA individual championships and three Haskins Awards (1990, 1991, 1992) as the outstanding collegiate golfer. He was the second collegiate golfer to earn first-team All-American honours all four years. Also, in 1990, he became the first left-hander to win the U.S. Amateur title. In 1991, at the age of 21 he won his first PGA Tour event, the Northern Telecom Open. He did so as an amateur, becoming only the fourth player in PGA history to accomplish this feat.

Mickelson turned pro in 1992 following his graduation from Arizona State. He bypassed The Tour's qualifying process because of his 1991 Tucson win. He won many PGA Tour tournaments, including the Byron Nelson Golf Classic and the World Series of Golf in 1996, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 1998, the Colonial National Invitation in 2000 and the Greater Hartford Open in 2001 and again in 2002. He also won the Buick Invitational in 2000, defeating Tiger Woods and ending his streak of consecutive tournament victories.

Mickelson has a lifetime exemption on the PGA Tour, for being a tour member for over 15 years and having more than 20 tour victories. He has spent over 600 weeks in the top-10 of the Official World Golf Rankings and has been ranked in the final top 10 every year since 1996. However he has never held the World #1 ranking at any time in his career. Since joining the PGA Tour, Mickelson's caddy has been Jim "Bones" Mackay.

In the days leading up to the 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, Mickelson announced he had been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. He added that he had started medical treatment, and became a vegetarian in hopes of aiding his recovery. He maintains that both his short and long term prognosis are good, and the condition should have no long term effect on his golfing career, and that he currently feels well. He also stated that the arthritis may go into permanent remission after one year of medical treatment. He went on to finish the championship T12, five shots back of victor Martin Kaymer.

During his career Phil has won 48 professional events, 38 PGA Tour wins, 7 European Tour win and 3 others.
