Phil Mickelson talks about his win.
Phil Mickelson played nearly flawless golf only making one bogey – 5 on the par 4 10th – and shot 66 (-5) en route to his first Open Championship win. He left players behind him chasing as he birdied the 17th and 18th virtually guaranteeing the win. Ian Poulter made a run for the Claret Jug with a round of 67 (-4) to be the early clubhouse leader at 1 over par. In the end no player could match him and fittingly the best round of the day won the tournament. Tiger Woods finished T6 (+2) with 6 bogeys in his final round halting his chance of winning for the 4th time.
