Mickelson didn't win a major until he was 34, going 0-for-42 in them before breaking through at the Masters. While he probably won't catch Woods and his 14 majors, Woods only leads him 6-5 in major titles over the last decade.
And while Woods is stuck on his number, Mickelson seems intent on adding to his haul.
"I joke around all the time," Mackay said, "when he's 60 on the putting green at Augusta, he's going to say, 'I got a chance.'"
Hard to imagine, but there was a time this win would have been, too. Now, anything seems possible for Mickelson.
That should be reason to celebrate, too.
