• Biography

Phil Mickelson is known as an American golfer. He is most famous for winning more than 40 PGA tournaments and five major titles.


Philip Alfred Mickelson was born on June 16, 1970, in San Diego, California. Mickelson's career in golf started around the time he could walk. His folks, Phil and Mary, have regularly related the story of a youthful Phil fleeing from home at three years old, advising neighbors he was heading off to the fairway.

Phil Mickelson started an amateur golf career as a high schooler. He won 34 San Diego Junior Golf Association titles, utilizing his father's employment as a carrier pilot to score tickets to his different competitions. His mom accepted a temp position to help pay for his American Junior Golf Association play, which won him three sequential AJGA Rolex Player of the Year grants, and a full grant to Arizona State University.

Marriage, Wife, and Children

In 1996 Mickelson married Amy McBride, an ASU alum and a pro cheerleader for the NBA's Phoenix Suns. The couple proceeded to have three children named Amanda, Sophia, and Evan. Amy was determined to have breast cancer in 2009, yet recuperated enough from medicines to root on Mickelson's 2010 Masters win in person.

Career and Net Worth

Mickelson's first title as a star came in 1993 at Torrey Pines, and over the next decade, "Lefty" kept cutting out his place among the best in the game. He won the Byron Nelson Golf Classic and the World Series of Golf in 1996, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 1998, and the Colonial National Invitation in 2000. That year he also took over the Buick Invitational, crushing most loved Tiger Woods and ending the popular golf symbol's dash of back to back competition triumphs.

Regardless of his reliably solid play, Mickelson was unfit to get past the halfway point in the game's greatest competitions, leaving him with the informal title of "best player to always lose a noteworthy" match. The defining moment, at last, came at the 2004 Masters, when the 33-year-old birdied five of the last seven openings, including No. 18, to haul out a one-stroke prevail over Ernie Els.

In August 2018, it was reported that Mickelson and his long-term rival, Woods, would square off in a broadcast, one-on-one standoff in Las Vegas on November 23. Charged as a victor take-all match for $9 million, Mickelson said they were thinking about including a series of shots that included the longest drive, nearest to the opening, and longest putt. Unfortunately, the match never came to be.
