Now he's trying to focus on what's next, instead of what just happened. That's not easy, but he shows signs of coming out of his post-Muirfield celebration, just in time for the final major of the year, the PGA at Oak Hill.

"There's an opportunity to add to this year and make it every bit as special as it can be," he said, looking ahead. "I want to make sure I give myself every chance to play well because I've been playing some of my best golf the last few months."

He's primed to continue it.

His close friend and Ryder Cup partner, Keegan Bradley, was joking around with Mickelson a couple of days ago. Bradley is the defending champion of the Bridgestone, and teased Mickelson about the lofty title placed on every British Open champion.

"We were double-checking that we were going to play (a practice round at the Bridgestone) on Tuesday, and I said, 'I know you're the Champion Golfer of the Year, but I'll teach you how to play Akron if you want.' He only responded with, 'I won there when you were 9 years old.'"
