In the latest episode of the Sky Sports Golf podcast, we focus on Phil Mickelson's first win since 2013 as he beat Justin Thomas in a thrilling finale, while Tyrrell Hatton's behaviour is also discussed.
Jamie Spence and Jamie Weir join host Josh Antmann to reflect on a superb first World Golf Championship of the year in Mexico, where Mickelson lifted silverware for the first time since his Open victory at Muirfield.
The 47-year-old earned his 49th professional win after edging out Thomas, who had forced a play-off with a stunning hole-out for an eagle-two at the 72nd hole, although he then failed to match Mickelson's par at the first extra hole.
Hatton's fiery temper boiled over at times on the final day, and the panel ask if the young Englishman needs to be so hard on himself on the golf course.
On the European Tour, George Coetzee celebrated his first win in almost three years as he landed a second Tshwane Open crown, and we look ahead to another big week of golf as Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy return to action at the Valspar Championship.
