Player Notes

Mickelson started playing golf at the age of one and a half, playing left-handed as a mirror-image of his father's swing ... When Phil got serious about the game his father built a complete practice area in the backyard of their home in San Diego ... Phil had a fabulous amateur career, winning the 1989 and 1990 NCAA Championships and the 1990 U.S. Amateur, and was the consensus 1990 College Player of the Year; he was also the low amateur (T29th) at 1990 U.S. Open and a four-time All-American ... Mickelson won the 1991 Northern Telecom Open as an amateur, becoming the fifth youngest winner of a professional event ever ... He turned professional at the 1992 U.S. Open, and since then has become the 3rd golfer (Jack Nicklaus and Jerry Pate are the others) to win five events before age 25.

In 1996 he became the first golfer in over 20 years to win the Arizona slam (Nortel and Phoenix), the last to accomplish that was Johnny Miller ... With his 10th win at Bay Hill in 1997, he was the fourth youngest player to accomplish that milestone (only Horton Smith, Gene Sarazen and Jack Nicklaus were younger, Tiger Woods has since joined that list) ... Though he plays golf left-handed, is right-handed in everything else ... One of only four male collegians (with Ben Crenshaw, Curtis Strange and Billy Ray Brown) to win the NCAA title as a freshman ... One of only three players (with Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods) to win the NCAA and the U.S. Amateur in the same year ... Led the 1996 money list from January until the last week of the year when Tom Lehman won the Tour Championship ... His four wins were the most won on the PGA Tour in 1996.

Without winning in 1999 he broke a streak in which he had won at least one PGA Tour event every year since 1993 (six consecutive years) ... One streak that is still alive, he has won over a million dollars a year for the last five years. He enjoyed his sixth multi-winner year in 2000, and his second four-win season His win in the 2000 Buick Invitational ended Tiger Woods' victory streak at six.
