Phil Mickelson completes wire-to-wire Phoenix romp

Mickelson missed out on the lowest 72-hole score in PGA history, a 26-under par 254 by Tommy Armour III at the 2003 Texas Open, but settled for a share of the second-lowest 72-hole tournament total in PGA history on 28-under par 256.

Scottsdale, Arizona: Phil Mickelson fired a four-under par 67 on Sunday to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the $6.2 million US PGA Phoenix Open, capturing his 41st career title by four strokes.

It was the first time a player led every round alone on the way to a tour title since Rory McIlroy's breakthrough major triumph at the 2011 US Open.

"I played really good golf," Mickelson said. "This is how I've been playing for a while and it feels really good to get that golf out of me when I'm at a big tournament."
