Phil Mickelson won The British Open. He played a final Major round for the ages. He hit a three wood shot in the clutch we won't soon forget. He renewed his quest for a career grand slam. He again carried us along on his roller coaster, but this time he didn't break our hearts. He let us enjoy this monumental victory with him as he played tremendously well over the stretch of the final 6 holes. And he did all of this with his usual class and style. The British Open has a richly deserving champion, and all of us have a genuine hero.
