The golf world turns its attention to Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis this week for the 100th PGA Championship, the final major championship of the season.

Phil Mickelson enters the week in search of his second career PGA Championship victory. The five-time major champion last won the PGA Championship at Baltusrol in 2005, where a classic Mickelson flop shot on the 18th hole led to a tap-in birdie and one-shot victory over Thomas Bjorn and Steve Elkington. Click here for highlights.

Putting and scoring will be key to success this week at Bellerive, and Mickelson has excelled in both departments this season. He currently ranks first on the PGA Tour in putting average (1.68) and fourth in birdie average (4.38). If Lefty can once again excel in both areas, he has a great chance to hoist the Wannamaker Trophy for the second time.
