AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Phil Mickelson has won his third Masters title, shooting a 5-under 67 to pull away for a three-stroke win over Lee Westwood.
Already a fan favorite and now the sentimental pick with his wife and mother battling breast cancer, Mickelson rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt at the signature 12th hole. He then managed a
stunning shot off the pine straw and around a tree to set up another birdie at the next hole.
Lefty wrapped it up with yet another birdie at the 18th, then headed to the side of the green to hug wife Amy.
