This season, Mickelson ended a winning drought that went back to 2013 when he won the World Golf Championship-Mexico with a final-round 66 to finish 16-under. Mickelson beat Justin Thomas in a playoff. He also has six top-10 finishes this year. No player was under more pressure to perform than Mickelson at the 2016 Ryder Cup, the unofficial "playing captain," if you will. Playing in his American-record 11th consecutive Ryder Cup, Lefty -- the reason for all the changes to the U.S. process of selecting captains and preparing for the matches-- delivered the goods. Overall, Mickelson went 2-1-1 at Hazeltine. Funny enough, the most memorable match of the week for Mickelson and many others, will be the one that ended in a draw -- his Sunday singles match with Sergio Garcia. Mickelson and Garcia -- two Ryder Cup stalwarts -- put on an exhibition, collecting 19 birdies between them. In 11 Ryder Cup starts, this was just Mickelson's third time as a member of the winning side. His focus now turns to Paris in 2018, where Mickelson tries to win on foreign soil for the first time in his career. The last time the U.S. turned that trick was in 1993... which also happens to be the last time Mickelson was not a member of a Ryder Cup team.
