Phil Mickelson’s Comebacks

Phil Mickelson who won the PGA Championship this year one month before his 51st birthday is the same person who fought bad luck, trouble of his own creation and adversity in his career.

A lefty who was never supposed to win a major just keeps on winning through physical problems, the cancer of his wife, Amy, some classic meltdowns, a few unfortunate comments from his own mouth and his age.

Even non-golfers were taken with his PGA victory recently – some because they wanted the “old guy” to win at the younger person’s game and others because of the pure theater when he was rushed by fans as he approached the final green.

Comebacks happen when you expect them not because they surprise you.
