Phil Mickelson has admitted that he is pleased to end his trophy drought following Sunday's win at the Phoenix Open.
The triumph was Mickelson's first on the PGA Tour in nearly a year.
"It's an important one for me because it's been a while since I won, been a while since I've been in contention," he said.
"I played really good golf and I had to fight really hard to fight off a charging Brandt Snedeker, who played great.
"It's a hard thing to do, to win on the PGA Tour, and I'm very appreciative and fortunate."
The title is the 54th of Mickelson's professional career.
