Mickelson’s magic continues to endear him to the golfing public

It’s an axiom usually reserved for playmaking wide receivers and clutch 3-point shooters, but one that has held true for some of the PGA Tour’s elite stars so far this season:

“Big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games.” And tournaments.

The most exciting, awe-inspiring, goosebump-inducing shots of 2008 have come from four of the biggest big-time players in the game. First there was Tiger Woods’ hat-slamming putt to win at Bay Hill, then Adam Scott’s 48-foot bomb to take the Byron Nelson playoff, and don’t forget Sergio Garcia’s sublime swing on 17 at The Players Championship.
On Sunday, that threesome added a fourth as Phil Mickelson overcame a reappearance of Way Left Lefty to make birdie for a 1-stroke win at Colonial. The Weekly 18 begins with the notion that, well, it was just Phil being Phil.

If you find yourself sitting on a 19th hole barstool this week, chances are the conversation will turn to this: Did you see the shot from Phil Mickelson? How did he do that?
