Having tapped in for birdie, Mickelson watched on as Grace's valiant attempt to follow him in from 30 feet drifted past the hole, thereby handing the American the win and, with it, a cheque for 579,079 euro.

Castle Stuart, Scotland: Phil Mickelson could not have asked for a better warm-up for his challenge at the Open Championships as he claimed his first victory in a regular European Tour event at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open here.

Mickelson will attempt to lift the Claret Jug for the first time, when he tees up at Muirfield next week.
