It was a weekend of overdue wins on both the PGA and LPGA Tours, with golf legends Phil Mickelson and Michelle Wie proving they’ve still got what it takes to dig in and find the win.  Check out all the action from Mexico and Singapore plus take a look at the gear both Callaway players used to secure their victories.

American Phil Mickelson picked up his 43rd career win on Sunday, claiming the WGC-Mexico Championship title after a playoff with world number two Justin Thomas. The win marks Mickelson’s third WGC title and his first win since the 2013 Open Championship.

At 47 years of age the Callaway player is the oldest golfer to win a WGC event but states he isn’t finished winning yet.

“I believe that more is to come, and I feel like I’m starting to play some of my best golf,” Mickelson told reporters on Sunday. Adding, “To culminate here in Mexico City with a World Golf Championship victory is very exciting to me beyond words because it just validates the hard work I put in and the struggle for the last few years to finally get my game back.”
