Continued: Column: Mickelson adds another chapter to long US Open story

Mickelson has three green jackets, 41 career wins and a large fortune from earnings and endorsements. He's the most popular player in the game, one of the most popular athletes in sports.

But he's 42 and approaching an age where players traditionally no longer compete for major titles. So when he was asked after his round how he feels about his relationship with the Open he was a bit more reflective than usual.

"If I'm able, and I believe I will, if I'm able to ultimately win a U.S. Open, I would say that it's great," Mickelson said. "But if I never get that win, then it would be a bit heart-breaking."

For the player and his legion of fans.

Not nearly as heartbreaking, though, as missing his daughter's graduation.
