Phil Mickelson Wins Scottish Open

BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/Getty Images(INVERNESS, Scotland) -- Phil Mickelson beat Branden Grace on Sunday after he birdied the first playoff hole to take home a win at the Scottish Open.

Lefty finished the day 3-under-par 69 along with the playoff hole for his first win in Europe since 1993.

"The people here in Scotland have treated us so well," he said. "I've really enjoyed my time here."

Mickelson was using this tournament as a tune-up for next week's British Open.

Tiger Woods remains the heavy favorite to win the British Open, but Mickelson will take $740,000 into the tournament for the win on Sunday.
