Mickelson ends 20-year European title drought with Scottish Open win

Wellington, July 15 (ANI): Phil Mickelson won the Scottish Open to end his 20-year wait for a victory in Europe after he birdied the first playoff hole to beat Branden Grace.

According to stuff.co.nz, after three-putting the 72nd hole to miss out on a win in regulation, Mickelson produced a superb pitch from 45 yards that landed within a foot of the 18th pin, leaving Grace a 25-footer to match him.

The report said that Mickelson would now become no.5 in the world and at least 740,000 dollars richer.

Mickelson last won a European title in Paris on the European Challenge Tour in 1993, the report added. (ANI)
