Grabs FedExCup Points Lead
CARLSBAD, CALIF., September 3 /CNW/ - A clutch, final-round performance
at the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday gave Callaway Golf Staff
Professional Phil Mickelson his third win of the season and vaulted him to the
top of the PGA Tour's FedExCup points standings.
With a 5-under-par 66 on Monday at the TPC Boston in Norton,
Massachusetts, Mickelson out-dueled the world's No. 1 ranked player over the
final nine holes and claimed a two-shot win. While notching his 32nd career
PGA Tour victory, he also regained the No. 2 ranking in the world.
Mickelson used his FT-5 Driver to lead the field in total driving and
average 310 yards off the tee. He also used the X Hot 3-wood, 3H X Hybrid, 2H
FT-Hybrid, X-Forged Irons, Odyssey White Hot XG #9 Putter, the HX Tour Golf
Ball and Callaway Golf Footwear with the Big Bertha Spike.
Mickelson turned in a solid performance in nearly every facet of the

His driving distance was good for fourth in the field, and he matched that
position in driving accuracy, hitting 76.8 percent of fairways for the week.

per round (26.3). His 69.4 percent accuracy with his irons placed him at T8 in
greens in regulation, and he was perfect for the week in sand saves.
The three-time major championship winner shot 70-64-68-66 to finish the
tournament 16-under-par. He saved his best for the final round, however, when
