Phil Mickleson Won His Third Masters
April 11 has proven to be a lucky day for Phil Mickelson, as he won his third Masters golf tournament - becoming only the eighth player in history to win the green jacket three or more times. In contention throughout the 2010 Masters, Mickelson had a sizzling 5-under final round score of 67, giving him a four-day total of 16 under par - three shots better than runner-up British golfer Lee Westwood. Once again, Athens resident Jim “Bones” Mackay served as Mickelson’s caddie.
