ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) Phil Mickelson loved golf before he was old enough to walk and swing a club. It took him on a thrilling ride of major championships and a few spectacular crashes, eventually leading to his induction Monday night into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Mickelson was inducted with two-time major champion Sandy Lyle of Scotland, writer Dan Jenkins, British player-turned-broadcaster Peter Alliss, and four-time LPGA major champion Hollis Stacy. That brought membership in the Hall of Fame to 141, nearly half of them since it moved to the World Golf Village in 1998.

Yes, it’s the second time Fowler has beat Rory in a playoff to win (once in Korea).
Wow- Mr. Trivia! I didn’t know that. I’ll be collecting a beer at the club tomorrow when I stump my playing partners with your tid bit. thanks
That was indicated on the 3rd round 17th hole.
Rickie nailed the green with his drive. After picking up his tee, he glanced towards Rory who was waiting in turn, and gave him a big smile.
It will be fun to watch. Rory with all the natural skill and talent and Rory with good old fashion "attitude" . . . Southern California style.
I have been a fan of Lefty especially in the tiger vs. lefty war...on the course. It does seem strange that golf puts both men and women in the Hall before they retire. Of course with a senior tour that extends their palying into the 70’s retiring is another issue.
