Phil Mickelson made history Sunday at the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island as he held on to win his sixth major championship and, at 50 years of age, became the oldest player to ever a win a major.
Mickelson had a wild final-round performance that had some really cool moments, including a sea of fans walking him up the 18th fairway after a very good approach shot that basically sealed the victory.
Tiger Woods was watching from home where he's recovering from his February car accident. Woods and Mickelson were rivals for years during the peak of their careers but have become more friendly with each other over recent years.
