Three-time NCAA Champion

Mickelson is one of seven collegiate golfers to win back-to-back individual NCAA Championships and he became just the second player to win three individual titles in his college career. He won as a freshman, sophomore and senior, while setting NCAA two-round (16-under 128) and three-round records (19-under 197) in his final year of college. His 63 in the first round of the 1992 NCAA Championship was a career-low and his 72-hole total of 271 tied the NCAA record at the time.

Mickelson didn't just win, he won with all-time great scores.

Arizona State won the team title in 1990 and finished as the runner-up in 1992.
