Mickelson is handed over the green jacket.

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.

1961: The Boston Celtics defeat the St Louis Hawks for their fourth title.

1981: Larry Holmes beats Trevor Berbick in 15 rounds for the heavyweight boxing title.

1996: The NHL’s Detroit Red Wings become just the second team in history to win 60 games in a season.

2015: Many Clouds, ridden by Leighton Aspell, wins the 168th Grand National.
