Four time Major winner of golf Phil Mickelson has still plenty of golf left in front of him and as a result, his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame might just be a bit awkward, but he still managed to enjoy the event in which his career and his achievements were honored, maybe prematurely.
Speaking of his induction and how it will affect his performances, he stated that it was still fun to him and he will still enjoy the game like he has always done.
Mickelson walked into the Hall of Fame of golf with two time former Major champion Sandy Lyle and the three time US Open champion Hollis Stacy of the LPGA Tour. He stated that it was fun to be able to look back at his career having accomplished a fair deal on the course and he is confident that he will be able to add some more achievements to look back to in the future. He also said of this achievement that while looking back to the entire process, of getting to where he has come and achieving the goals that he has done, the relationships as well as the experiences of life are what Phil Mickelson keeps coming back to.
Mickelson was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame by his former manager and coach Steve Loy. Speaking to the audience after his induction, he spoke about how his dad had built a forty yard hole in the backyard of their house and how his first amateur victory at the Tucson Open of 1991 was still the most important of his career.
The signature of Phil Mickelson on the Walk of Fame is sting next to that of Arnold Palmer and maybe appropriately because no one has changed the face of golf like the two of them have done.
