Lefty Wins an Open

The talk of the British Open on Thursday was about Tiger Woods. It's always about Tiger. He hasn't won a major in five years. A lot of the experts thought he would end the drought this week.
Last night it looked like he would pull through. He was in contention and along side Lee Westwood atop the leader board.
It was not to be for Tiger or Lee. Out of nowhere, Phil Mickleson birdied four of the last six holes to win The Open Championship. No one saw this coming. Lefty wasn't even expecting to win. He won the Scottish Open last week, but it was an afterthought.
He just kept grinding. I'm sure he felt no pressure because there was no pressure for him to win. He didn't even think about it. He just showed up and won. This was his fifth major victory, and he has now won three of the four majors. We all know which one is alluding him.
