Mickelson's win sets up great Masters' showdown with Tiger

It has been 20 years since Phil mickelson first stepped inside the ropes at Riviera, a 17-year-old amateur in awe of the fabled course off Sunset Boulevard. Lefty finally joined a prestigious list of winners on Sunday, adding to his impressive collection of PGA Tour titles on the Left Coast. Mickelson made two clutch putts on the back nine, seized control when Jeff Quinney self-destructed with the putter, and took a relaxing walk up the 18th fairway with a victory he felt was a long time coming. He closed with a 1-under 70 for a two-shot victory, the 33rd of his career, with 16 of those in California and Arizona.
