American Phil Mickelson overcame a surprising loss of focus on the 72nd hole and held his nerve to beat South Africa's Branden Grace in a playoff and claim a confidence-boosting maiden win at the Scottish Open at Inverness on Sunday (July 14). Mickelson, 43, had looked certain to claim victory without the need for extra holes as he strolled up the par-five 18th with a one-shot lead.
