SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Phil Mickelson’s wild week has ended with a satisfying flourish, even though he won’t win the PGA Championship.
It started with him disclosing he had psoriatic arthritis and that he’d become a vegetarian.
Mickelson finally found the consistency he’d searched for all week to the delight of his large following by chewing through Whistling Straits on Sunday, finishing with a final round 67 to complete the tournament at 6-under 282.
Mickelson won’t leave Wisconsin as the world’s No. 1 golfer, either. He says he would’ve delayed his flight if he’d reached 9 under or better to watch the leaders. The four-time major champion eagled the par-5 fifth and birdied three consecutive holes on the back nine. He won the 2005 PGA.
