The Golf Blog says: Phil Mickelson is a gambler. It’s helped him win 5 majors. But it’s also cost him a few majors. Let’s look back at the Top 5 Mickelson meltdowns. Gotta love, Phil. He’s got a short memory.

1. Double bogey on final hole 2006 US Open



2. Triple bogey on par 3 4th hole 2012 Masters

The Golf Blog says
: Jimmy Walker won the PGA Championship, edging Jason Day (who eagled the 18th) by 1 stroke. The victory is Walker’s first major, making 2016 a year in which all 4 majors were won by first-time major winners (Willett, Johnson, Stenson, and Walker). The majors were won by 2 Americans and 2 Europeans this year. Now, on to Rio.

It’s also a year in which Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Jason Day were shut out at the majors.

The Golf Blog says: Phil Mickelson sliced and then hooked his tee shot on the first hole for what turned out to be a “good” triple bogey 7. It was reminiscent of Rory McIlroy losing the Masters after hitting his ball near a house on 10 at Augusta.

But 7 wasn’t the highest score for Phil at a major. 9 was, at the 13th hole at Torrey Pines at the 2008 U.S. Open.

The Golf Blog says: Just 2 weeks after the Open Championship, we’re all set for the PGA Championship at Baltusrol. The short time frame is due to the Rio Olympics, which marks a return of golf back to the Olympics.

Just a reminder, we’ve had 3 first-time major wins this year: Danny Willett (Masters), Dustin Johnson (US Open), and Henrik Stenson (British Open). That suggests we’ll have another first time major winner at the PGA Championship, which historically has seen many first-time major winners.
