David Toms beats out Phil Mickelson for PGA Championship
Phil Mickelson had seen it before.
He knew what was coming.
Mickelson stood behind the 18th green Sunday at the PGA Championship, not far from the Wanamaker Trophy, watching another guy face a par putt to win a major championship that could have been his.
Two years ago in the U.S. Open, it was Payne Stewart. This time it was David Toms.
The result was the same.
With a conservative decision that could have haunted him the rest of his career, Toms laid up on the 490-yard closing hole and made the decision pay off with a 12-foot par putt to win the PGA Championship.
