Phil Mickelson did the unthinkable on May 23. He became the oldest major champion in history at 50 years old.

He stayed focused during the entire tournament at Kiawah Island. Despite the pressure and the expectation of him winning it all, he didn’t take a second off and finished strong with a par on Hole 18 to finish 6-under and win with a two-stroke lead.

Great win Phil. Sam was my favorite until the fat kid started winning. It's possible Jack's record may never be broken. The new leader, Jordan, might do it if he can learn Toms putting stroke. He puts bold if trailing but gets timid when leading. When Tom was winning he putted bold leading or trailing.
