Daddy Won

Hats off to Phil Mickelson's first major championship triumph. I'm an Ernie Els fan, but I think even he was happy for Mick. Hats off as well to Casey Wittenberg, runner-up at the US Amateur last year. He finished at even par, shooting 31 on the back nine and earning himself a ticket back to Augusta next year with a 13th-place finish.

Next up is the US Open at Shinnecock Hills in Southhampton, New York, arguably the hardest great golf course in America.
