Mickelson cards 59 in Grand Slam glory

PHIL MICKELSON confessed he was amazed to join the exclusive ’59’ club – the best score in professional stroke-play history – after winning the PGA’s Grand Slam of Golf in Hawaii.

The Masters champion stormed to a five-shot victory over Vijay Singh, the PGA Championship winner, who carded a second successive 66.

Mickelson admitted: “It feels like a little fluke, because I wasn’t really sharp, I didn’t really feel like I was practising well.

“It just kind of all came together. The ball went in the hole. I didn’t hit it great and somehow I shot 59.”

Mickelson’s 13-under-par round came in ideal conditions at the 7,081-yard Poipu Bay Golf Course, but he could have carded a lower score had he sunk a five-foot birdie putt on the 10th and a nine-footer on the 18th.
