PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - Andy Mickelson won the PGA Assistant Championship on Sunday, closing with a 1-under 71 for a two-stroke victory on PGA Golf Club's Wanamaker Course.
The 34-year-old Mickelson is a PGA apprentice at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, Illinois. He finished at 16-under 272 after shooting 68-65-68 to take a two-stroke lead into the final round.
''The biggest win I have ever had. It is just surreal,'' Mickelson said. ''I am having trouble fathoming this, to be honest. All week, I was in the mindset of 'shot to shot.' I did not get ahead of myself. I just kept my head down.''
Adam Rainaud of South Hadley, Massachusetts, was second after a 71.
