He grew up in San Diego and Scottsdale, Arizona. As a young boy, he learned golf from his father, who took him out to play twice or thrice a week. Though he was a right-handed child, he played the sport left-handed, mirroring his father in their backyard.

His parents encouraged him to pick up golf by using his father’s airline job to help him compete in various tournaments, and his mother pitched in with the expenses by taking up a job.

He has a brother Tim Mickelson and a sister Tina Mickelson.


Phil attended Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, California.

After that, he attended Arizona State University in Arizona, USA, and the University of San Diego High School in San Diego, California.

Phil Mickelson- Professional Life, Career

Mickelson was exempted from the qualification process for professional golf due to his ‘PGA Tour’ win in 1991, which was valid for two years. He hired Jim “Bones” Mackay as his caddy in 1992 and played a number of ‘PGA’ tours in the coming years.

In 2000, Phil ended Tiger Wood’s winning streak of six consecutive triumphs on the ‘PGA’ tour, by clinching the ‘Buick Invitational.’ However, he has not won a major yet and was labeled as the “best player never to win a major,” in golf circles during that period.

Mickelson finally managed to get over the jinx of majors in 2004, when he won the 68th ‘Masters Tournament’ at the ‘Augusta National Golf Club’ in Georgia at the age of 33. He became the third left-handed golfer to win a ‘Masters Tournament’ in the history of golf.

His ‘Masters’ win was followed by an all-time career low till he picked up his second major title at the ‘PGA Championship’ at Baltusrol, in 2005. He ranked second on the ‘Official World Golf Ranking’ list in 2007, after winning the ‘Masters’ in 2006, his third major title. This was the highest ranking of his career.

Phil was in the run to join Tiger Woods and Ben Hogan to be the only players to win three majors in a row, but his performance dropped at the ‘US Open’ at Winged Foot, in 2006, where he finished in a tie for the second place, one stroke behind Geoff Ogilvy.
