NO.1 Men's World Rankings US Money List LPGA Money List Order of Merit LET Money List Women's Rankings Latest Rankings & Money Lists HOLES of the Open Championship Phil Mickelson played before recording a bogey. He was the only player in the 156-man field without a dropped shot at the time of his first blemish. 30 STARTS in major championships before Henrik Stenson held a 54-hole lead.
