Having won the British Open today, I think this now propels Phil into a US Open or bust mentality, in order to complete his career grand slam. We all know how well he plays in the US Open, having come in 2nd place like 5 or 6 times now. And now with winning that tournament that we all and even himself thought was really not going to happen, he's got to be even more motivated now to get that US Open.
He really is one of the greatest of all time. I mean, he's got 5 majors and he's absolutely thrown away 2, which he should honestly have at minimum 7.
I don't think he's done though. He's got so much skill and his power isn't showing any signs of slowing or fading. I'd say he's got another good 4 or 5 years at which he can play excellent golf every year.
I think he'll end up with 6, maybe 7 but no more and no less.
