He has won 45 events on the PGA Tour, including six major championships: three Masters titles (2004, 2006, 2010), two PGA Championships (2005, 2021), and one Open Championship (2013).

Is a Billionaire
When Phil Mickelson consented to join LIV Golf, he was offered a whopping amount of $200 million. As a result, he broke Lionel Messi’s record of being the highest-paid athlete in 2022.
As per sources, this new addition to an already massive fortune in earnings over the course of his career resulted in Mickelson becoming a billionaire.
The only other golfer who is a billionaire is none other than Tiger Woods.
The fifteen-time major champion became the first golfer to cross the $1 billion mark when it came to his career earnings.
As per Forbes, the American golfer has earned at least 1.1 billion dollars as a result of his prize money, course design, appearance fees, and, of course, sponsorships.
Even though Phil Mickelson is a billionaire, he is not very close to Tiger Woods when it comes to earnings from the popular sport.
However, he holds the second position when it comes to the all-time PGA Tour earnings as of 2022, with $94,955,060, right below Woods with $120,895,206.
When it comes to Phil Mickelson’s net worth, it is significantly lower than his earnings. The six-time major champion has been playing professional golf since 1992 and has been associated with major brands for sponsorship deals.
His current net worth was reported to be $300 million, as per the report by Celebrity Net Worth.

Her grace, charm, kindness, laugh, smile, and brilliance have made me the luckiest man in the world. Thank you, my love, for sharing our lives together.”
Together, the Mickelsons share three children and have been through their share of hardships, including Amy’s cancer diagnosis in 2009, which Phil described as the most “emotional” period of his life.
Formerly known as Amy McBride, the golfer’s future wife was a member of the Phoenix Suns cheerleading squad while attending Arizona State University.
Together, Amy shares three children with her husband. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Amanda Brynn Mickelson on June 21, 1999, the day after Phil came in second at the 1999 U.S. Open to Payne Stewart.
