2004 Mike Weir presents Phil Mickelson with his US Masters Jacket

Mickelson erased a 46-event streak (which included four tries as an amateur) of never having won a major championship. The streak came to a halt as Mickelson coaxed in a downhill 18-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole. The putt also gave Mickelson his first berth in the 22nd PGA Grand Slam of Golf, Nov. 22-24, at Poipu Bay Golf Course at The Hyatt Regency Kauai Resort & Spa in Kauai, Hawai

Mickelson’s previous major disappointments most notably one stroke losses to Payne Stewart in the 1999 U.S. Open and to David Toms in the 2001 PGA Championship seemed far away now.

Course Overview
Augusta National Golf Club gets its natural beauty honestly, as the venerable facility was built on the grounds of the former Fruitland Nurseries and each of the 18 holes is adorned with the trees and shrubs for which the holes are named. The course was created by club founder Bobby Jones and course architect Alister Mackenzie in 1933, and is best known for “Amen Corner” — the 11th, 12th and 13th holes that often spell the difference between success and failure. Augusta National has been controversially lengthened in recent years, but remains a course where a delicate putting touch is mandatory.
