Phil Mickelson's Open Championship

After a few days of reflecting on The Open Championship, I can definitely say that the pressure effects even the best in the world.  Phil Mickelson won the British Open because he performed the best down the stretch.  Only a few players had good rounds to finish off their week in Scotland.  The ones who did play well didn't seem to have a chance because they were too far back.  The others in position to win collapsed when the heat was on.  These are some of the greatest golfers of a all time and even they succumb to the pressure.   Mickelson started accelerating while everyone was backing up.  He made 4 birdies in his last 6 holes.  I believe the keys to success in this situation is to stick to fundamentals, believe that you love the uncomfortableness of it and focus.  I think that Phil will use these tools to win at least one more major and many more PGA Tour victories.  The real question is will he win the U.S. Open.  This would finish off his career Grand Slam.  I think he will  pull it off, especially after seeing his closing performance at Muirfied.  Do you think he will get another?
