“I really had a great time. It’s fun for me to compete. I got to shoot scores and compete, and the competition here is really strong and it was fun for me to get off to a good start and play well,” said Mickelson. 

Mickelson’s score, 191, is tied for the lowest in Champions Tour history at a 54-hole event.

The score was previously shot by Rocco Mediate in 2013. 

Mickelson now plans to take next week off before playing the PGA Tour’s season-opening Safeway Open in California. 

That will be his final tournament before the U.S. Open.
