Phil Mickelson would be the 4th oldest champ in the history of major golf if he manages to win his fourth Masters title and sixth major crown on Sunday at Augusta National.

Phil Mickelson told that he does not feel old at all. He feels great. He feels like he is in some of the best shape he has been in. He is driving the ball better than he has in well over a decade, and his game is coming along.
Different people have different definition of paradise. Well, for golfer Martin Kaymer, it is the eighteen holes of Augusta, where he walks out for the 1st round of the Masters.
For Martin there has been some problem in paradise. The ex world number one missed his 1st four cuts at Augusta and even though he relished his best finish in Masters previous year, still he was just 31st and thirteen shots off Bubba Watson, the winner.
Tiger Woods might have been out of the field given his constant injuries but his peers are still confident about him. One of them is golf champ Phil Mickelson who remarked that he won’t be surprised to the former # 1 contending at the upcoming Masters.

However, post multiple social low-rounds in Medallist Club (Florida) & a couple of practice rounds in Augusta National 2015, the 4-time Masters champ has confirmed his availability in the first Major in 2015.
Phil Mickelson is a professional golfer from the United States of America, who is currently a part of the US PGA Tour. He is a five time major winner, having won three Masters titles, and one Open Championship and PGA Championship each during his long career which has seen him win 42 titles, which puts him at ninth in the list of all time PGA Tour winners.
The entire golf world was shocked as the young golf icon Rory McIlroy lost out to Formula 1 legend Lewis Hamilton at the BBC Sports Personality of 2014 award last Sunday.
Rory’s Northern Irish fans, golf seniors and connoisseurs of the game were hoping hard for the Irish hero to win the coveted trophy since he was declared as the finalist for the prestigious award with Lewis Hamilton.
The F1 racing hero won his 2nd F1 title in November at UAE whilst Rory was the 1st golfer from UK to triumph at back-to-back golf majors as he claimed PGA US title this year.

The Cordoba, as Argentina born golf professional Angel Cabrera is popularly called, withdrew his participation from the PGA championship on the second day of the tournament.
“Cabrera bid an early goodbye to the last Major of the season”, said a PGA championship official that is taking place in Kentucky, United States at the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville.
While the Valhalla golf course has been a little harsh on the Northern Irishman, Graeme McDowell, he has had good luck from his endorsement company the Team RBC, where he won the online charity challenge for the children’s hospital in Ireland.
On his native ground Germany he finished with 73 in the round of 71. But he completed 12 shots while in the lead of halfway. Danny Willett joined him in the halfway. In fact Rafael Cabrera of Spain and Pablo Larrazabal together with Emiliano Grillo of Argentina were below 12.
