Phil Mickelson 2010 Masters Winner


Phil Mickelson shot a five under par 67 to win his third green jacket at the 2010 Masters. After his impressive round on Saturday where he had back to back eagles and a chance at a third in a row, Mickelson had a much tougher time on Sunday. Several of his drives missed the fairway and he was scrambling from the trees in the middle of the round. His shot on the 13th hole between two trees and on to the green will be remembered for a long time.

Even though he was off the fairway on a few holes he had no bogeys in the final round.

For the 2010 Masters, Mickelson had 16 birdies as he finished second in driving distance (297.12 yards), tied for third in greens in regulation (54 of 72) and tied for 13th in putting (116 putts).

Lee Westwood finished second and may be in line for Mickelson's old title of greatest golfer not to have won a major after finishing in the top three at the last three majors.

Anthony Kim shot a final round 65 to finish in third place. Kim's final round of 65 tied him for the low round of the 2010 Masters.

Tiger Woods and K.J. Choi tied for fourth, five strokes behind Mickelson. Woods and Choi played all four rounds together and had the same score after each round.
