Will Phil Mickelson be remembered as a Top 10 Golfer of all time?
54 Career Wins (44 on the PGA tour) and 5 majors.

Just unfortunate that his career ran along side Tiger’s, otherwise he would have dominated the sport without him.

Same, but it's closer than many may thing

Tiger and Jack
Snead
Hogan
Jones
Watson
Player
Palmer
Faldo
Triveno
Seve

Lots of really good players, but Phil is certainly squarely in that group

Golfers we know he isn't better than:

Woods
Nicklaus
Player
Palmer
Hogan
Snead

Can you find 4 more golfers better than Phil? That's the question. I don't think you can.

It's hard with the Europeans because they didn't start coming over to the US until the late 80s Faldo has 6 majors and Seve has 5, 50 European Tour wins and absolutely dominated the Order of Merit for a decade plus. They're certainly in the same class as Mickelson

Seve at his best was better than Phil but FIGJAM has the longevity edge.

Idk, is Clyde Drexler a top 10 2-guard of all time?

I think so, but is he remembered that way?

Sucks that he started having health problems as he was in his prime. I listened to a pod where they talked about how bad his health and back were in the late 80s.

Phil never made it to number one in the world because of Tiger. I think PM is worth about 400 million.

Golf is finicky. To act like Phil could of just dominated like Tiger. That's presumptuous. I'd say maybe also

Just unfortunate that he hit 2 fairways all day and then pulled a driver on 18 at Winged Foot. Otherwise he’s all over that list.

Mickelson is just inside the top 15.

There is a difference between a great golfer and great champion.
