During the tournament, his wife Amy and his mother Mary were battling breast cancer and no one would have blamed Mickelson if his play reflected that.
And yet, even without a victory on the season and plenty on his mind, Mickelson came into the Masters and once again was at his best to finish 16-under at 272, three shots better than runner-up Lee Westwood.
Mickelson has a total of five major victories, but his magic at the Masters is something else.
