Phil Mickelson has made two PGA Tour Champions starts. And he’s won them both.

The 50-year old legend will try to make history when the senior circuit sets up shop in Tucson next week. Mickelson will attempt to become the first golfer in tour history to win the first three events he’s entered. It’s never happened on any of the PGA Tour-sanctioned tours.

According to a report in Golfweek, Mickelson officially committed to the Cologuard Classic at Omni Tucson National.

Mickelson is not unfamiliar with recording historic feats in Tucson: Back in 1991 – over 30 years ago, the then 20-year old Arizona State junior claimed victory at the Northern Telecom Open in Tucson as an amateur. It was the first of 44 career PGA Tour titles for Lefty, and to this day he remains the last amateur to win a PGA Tour event.
