Phil Mickelson has enjoyed plenty of accolades, stemming from his historic victory at the PGA Championship.
At 50 years old, the veteran PGA golfer became the oldest major winner, after shooting a final-round score of 73. He defeated Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen by two strokes to secure the Wanamaker Trophy.
Mickelson is now in Detroit, embarking on his first-ever appearance at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Just ahead of the four-day tournament, The Detroit News published a story regarding an unpaid gambling debt owed to Mickelson and his ties to “one of the biggest gamblers in Detroit history.”
