Last week, Phil Mickelson once again tried to win the Career Grand Slam, but again failed to do so. Let us remember that in order to achieve this goal, the 49-year-old golfer needs to conquer only the unyielding US Open major, in which Mickelson has already finished second six times. A distinctive feature of the American Open majors are narrow fairways and an extremely complex rough, which in no way combines with the playing manner of Phil, who is used to act aggressively and creatively.
“I don’t have many opportunities left,” confessed to journalists Mickelson, who will celebrate his 50th anniversary by the next American Open. “Maybe it's time to admit that I was not destined to win the US Open.”
