Mickelson was the second collegiate golfer to earn first-team All-American honors all four years. Mickelson secured perhaps his greatest achievement as an amateur in January 1991, winning his first PGA Tour event, the Northern Telecom Open, in Tucson.

In 1990, he also became the first with a left-handed swing to win the U. At age 20, he was only the sixth amateur to win a tour event and the first in over five years after Scott Verplank at the Western Open in August 1985.

He was then let out of his multi-year deal with Titleist 16 months early, and signed on with Callaway Golf, his current equipment sponsor.

Mickelson also led the Sun Devils to the NCAA team title in 1990.

Over the course of his collegiate career, he won 16 tournaments.

Mickelson began golf under his father's instruction before starting school.

Phil Sr.'s work schedule as a commercial pilot allowed them to play together several times a week and young Phil honed his creative short game on an extensive practice area in their San Diego backyard.

Mickelson graduated from ASU in June 1992 and quickly turned professional.

He bypassed the tour's qualifying process (Q-School) because of his 1991 win in Tucson, which earned him a two-year exemption.

In it he praised their driver and golf ball, and thanked them for their help in getting some equipment for his brother.

This memo was played to all of their salesmen, and eventually found its way back to Titleist.

After winning two majors in a row heading into the U. Open at Winged Foot, Mickelson was bidding to join Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods as the only players to win three consecutive majors (not necessarily in the same calendar year).

Mickelson was the joint-leader going into the final round, but he was part of a wild finish to the tournament, in which he made major mistakes on the final hole and ended up in a tie for second place at 6 (286), one shot behind Geoff Ogilvy.

After the win, Mickelson said, "I didn't want to be the bad guy. I was just trying to win the golf tournament." Although he had performed very well in the majors up to the end of the 2003 season (17 top-ten finishes, and six second- or third-place finishes between 19), Mickelson's inability to win any of them led to him frequently being described as the "best player never to win a major".
