(MAY 23, 2018) — Phil Mickelson is once again featured in the ESPN World Fame 100, which ranks the biggest names in sports. This is the third annual ESPN World Fame 100, and Phil has been featured all three times. He is No. 10 in this year’s issue, while ranking No. 5 in 2017 and No. 13 in 2016.
This is just another accomplishment for Phil in 2018, as he’s had quite the run since the New Year. Lefty got hot in the new season, finishing T5 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open, T2 in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, T6 in the Genesis Open, and capped it off by winning the WGC-Mexico Championship in a thrilling playoff. On top of his impressive victory, Phil ranks third on Tour this season in par breakers. He’s broken par on 26.91% of his holes played.
Phil’s win at the WGC-Mexico Championship was his 43rd on the PGA Tour, and has his sights set on competing on the U.S. Ryder Cup team for the 12th consecutive time. That’s not all Phil wants to accomplish. He’s looking to complete the career Grand Slam at the U.S. Open as well as 50 PGA Tour victories.
