Our own Phil Mickelson Wins Tour Championship! September 29, 2009--Once again, we have one of our own winning a big event on the PGA Tour. This time, Phil Mickelson played magnificently and won the Tour Championship, the final event of the FedEx Cup. He also ended the year in second place in the FedEx Cup standings. "The thing is I've been working so hard with Butch and I've hit the ball so well, and yet my scores haven't reflected that," said Mickelson during the week of the Tour Championship. "And now you're starting to see the distance that I've increased, the accuracy, not so far off fairways, the iron shots, all the stuff that Butch and I have worked on, you'll start to see the results because the putter is now where it should be."

The Butch Harmon School of Golf in Las Vegas has become a historic golf landmark for the area. You just never know who will show up at the school, and that includes Mickelson, in addition to other Tour Championship competitors such as Nick Watney and Ernie Els. Harmon and his staff also offer schools that are open to the public, with the practice and clinics taking place at the school plus on the fairways of the Rees Jones-designed Rio Secco, home of the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge later this year.

As for Mickelson, the stories have already started about how 2010 might be the year that he breaks out and challenges Tiger Woods as the best player in the world. If his putter continues to work like it did during the Tour Championship, who knows what the ceiling is for Mickelson. Mickelson plans to continue to work with Harmon, who has been voted by his peers as the World's Top Golf Instructor in a Golf Digest poll, Stockton and short-game guru Dave Pelz.

"I'm excited about where my golf game is headed in that I know where my long game is headed with Butch's guidance, and I know where my short game is headed with both Daves' guidance, and I'm excited about what 2010 brings," said Mickelson following the Tour Championship victory. The Harmon School is also operated, at times, at Cascata, another Rees Jones Las Vegas golf course. Portions of this article from a story at GolfLasVegasNow.com.
