Mickelson Wins THE PLAYER'S Championship

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 14, 2007

With precise play from tee to green, Callaway Golf Staff Professional Phil Mickelson distanced himself from the field on Sunday for his first career victory at THE PLAYERS Championship. The two-stroke win at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, was the 31st of Mickelson's PGA career -- and he did it with uncharacteristically little drama.

Mickelson's lone bogey over the final 27 holes came on the final hole with the outcome all but assured. He fired a 3-under-par 69 on Sunday to finish the tournament 11-under-par, locking up his second victory of 2007.

On his way to taming the demanding new layout at TPC Sawgrass, Lefty used every tool in his bag -- the FT-5 Driver, a Tour 13 degree X Fairway Wood, 2H and 3H X Hybrids, the new X-Forged Irons, X-Tour Wedges the HX Tour Golf Ball and a prototype Odyssey Putter.

"What I'd like to do is have four days of ball-striking like today's final round and then it takes a lot of pressure off my short game," Mickelson said. "It was a very mediocre day for me putting. I could have run it high if I would have made some reasonable putts. I will gladly take the way the round went because it was a stress-free type round."

With the win, Mickelson moved to No. 2 in the World Golf Rankings and second place in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup Standings. In just three weeks of working with new instructor Butch Harmon, Mickelson has seen substantial results and sounds ready for the season's next two majors.
