Phil Mickelson targets five more years at the top

Five-time Major winner Phil Mickelson, 44, insists that he has at least five more years left at the top of his game as he prepares to defend his Open title this week.

Phil Mickelson has insisted that he has five years of performing at his peak remaining as he prepares to defend the Open Championship at Hoylake this week.

The 44-year-old American, who is a five-time Major winner, has only recorded one top-10 finish this season, but has stressed that he is not on the way down.

Furthermore, 'Lefty' has vowed to achieve some more career highlights before the end of the decade.

"The parts feel a lot better than the whole right now," he told reporters. "I believe the next five years are going to be some of the best of my career."

Mickelson, who has won three Masters titles and also lifted the USPGA Championship in 2005, secured a maiden Claret Jug when he triumphed at Muirfield 12 months ago.
