Mickelson Has Taken Champions By Storm
Monday, October 19, 2020

    Perhaps the most significant numbers emanating from the Dominion Energy Charity Classic are: Mickelson - 17 under 199, and Langer - 12 under 204. 

    It may be that Langer, the perennial Champions Tour leader for as long as we can remember, may have to make sure he enters all the events that Phil doesn't if he's going to continue his dominance. Phil is now 2-for-2 on the senior circuit after his final-round 65 yesterday over the Country Club of Virginia course.

    Phil was three strokes behind Mike Weir heading into Sunday, but Weir's 71 dropped him to second, three behind Phil. Langer closed with 67 to tie for fourth.

     Among the Gators, Chris DiMarco tied for 52nd at 1 under, and Scott Dunlap tied for 59th at even par.

    Phil goes back to the PGA Tour this week for the $8 million Zozo Championship at Sherwood in Thousand Oaks, California, where he'll square off against Tiger, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Jason Day, Patrick Reed, Gator Billy Horschel and Seminole Daniel Berger. This field is so loaded that the No. 1 alternate is Matt Kuchar . . . Louis Oosthuizen and Charles Howell III are also alternates. 

       In two weeks, the Champions Tour returns and the PGA Tour is off, so Phil will have a chance to make it 3-for-3 if he decides to play.
