Rolex Testimonee Phil Mickelson has won the 103rd PGA Championship, claiming the iconic Wanamaker Trophy for the second time to become the oldest winner in Major championship history and record his sixth career Major victory.
The age-defying American took the $2.1 million top prize with an epic victory for the ages, producing a dazzling shotmaking display at windy Kiawah Island while younger rivals faded.
“It has been an incredible day, certainly one of the moments I’ll cherish my entire life,” Mickelson said. “I don’t know how to describe the feeling of excitement and fulfillment and accomplishment to do something of this magnitude when very few people thought that I could.”
With 16 years between PGA Championship triumphs, Mickelson owns the longest gap between wins at the same major and erases the major age win mark set by American Julius Boros when he captured the 1968 PGA Championship at age 48.
Holding a one-shot lead heading into the final round, Mickelson displayed impressive accuracy and resilience throughout the tournament, attributes that resonate strongly with Rolex’s own pursuit of perpetual excellence in its watchmaking and all other endeavors.
