ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Phil Mickelson says there’s a “spiritual” feel to this year’s British Open and knows it would be a huge achievement to win another major at the birthplace of golf.
Lefty says “a career just doesn’t feel complete unless you’ve won here at St. Andrews.” So, what does he think of his chances? Mickelson says he definitely expects to be a contender on a course that rewards long hitters and has plenty of room to break out the driver.
He already has four major championships, the latest an emotional victory at this year’s Masters when he was greeted after the final hole by his wife, Amy, who’s been battling cancer. Mickelson is striving for a career Grand Slam – and he’ll have three titles out of the way there if he can win at St. Andrews.
