Phil Mickelson posted a final-round 73 on Sunday at The Ocean Course to claim one of the most improbable wins in golf history: a sixth major at the age of 50 at the 2021 PGA Championship.
The San Diego, California native signed for a final-day card comprised of 6 bogeys, five birdies, and seven pars en route to a 6-under par total, two clear of Brooks Koepka (74) and Louis Oosthuizen (73).
The win earned Mickelson $1,980,000 and 600 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 35 on the PGA Tour’s money list.
Mickelson also scored 100 Official World Golf Rankings points which will move him to No. 32, from 115. It marks Mickelson’s best world-ranking since early in the 2019 season. (Just in time for the Ryder Cup.)
Runners-up Koepka and Oosthuizen each took home a check for $1,056,000 along with 270 FedExCup points, and 50 OWGR points.
