Phil Mickelson had played the British Open 18 times before. He'd never won it.

That changed last Sunday when Mickelson erased a five-stroke deficit in the final round by firing a 66 and winning the Open Championship at Muirfield in Scotland.

Days later, Mickelson brought the coveted Claret Jug back to the states and shared it with a group of people that helped him win it -- the employees at Callaway Golf. Every single worker got a chance to hold the 141-year-old trophy. It was Mickelson's way of saying thanks, and a pretty rare gesture indeed.
