Arizona State alum Phil Mickelson cruised to a three-shot shot victory at this week’s Dominion Energy Charity Classic on the PGA Tour Champions.

The 50-year-old Mickelson, who is in his first year on the PGA’s senior circuit, finished the three-round tournament with a score of -17, holding off former Masters champion Mike Weir for the win.

Mickelson has won both of his starts on the PGA Tour Champions circuit to date, previously winning the Charles Schwab Series this year.

He became the 20th player to win their PGA Tour Champions debut after winning 44 PGA events between 1992 and 2019, including five major championships.

Mickelson closed out his latest victory on Sunday with a bogey-free back nine that included birdies on the 13th, 15th, 16th and 18th holes.

His fourth and final birdie came on the par-five 18th hole, putting the finishing touch on a seven-under round of 65 that sealed the victory.

Mickelson, who graduated from ASU in 1992, finished Sunday with four birdies and a bogey on the course’s five par-five holes after trailing Weir by three strokes entering today’s action.

The PGA Tour Champions circuit is open to professional players that are 50 and older. It was founded in 1980 as the Senior PGA Tour.
