Phil Mickelson stamped golf history on Sunday, turning into the most seasoned victor of a significant competition with his triumph at the 2021 PGA Championship.
He completed two shots in front of Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course, following a magnificent last round execution, completing six-under for the competition.
In succeeding at matured 50, Mickelson outperformed the record recently held by Julius Boros, who won the PGA Championship in 1968 at age 48.

“This is only a mind boggling feeling since I recently accepted that it was conceivable however yet everything was saying it wasn’t. I trust that others find that motivation,” he said in his post-round meeting.
“It may take some additional work, somewhat harder exertion to keep up actually or keep up the abilities, however gosh, is it great eventually, and I’m so grateful to hold this Wanamaker Trophy.”
