    Phil Mickelson claimed his second victory in as many starts on the PGA Tour Champions by winning the Dominion Energy Charity Classic on Sunday.

    The five-time Major champion closed out the week with a seven-under-par 65 for his final round as he won the event by three strokes with a winning score of 17 under par.

    Mickelson saw off Canadian Mike Weir with a particularly strong back nine by making a very strong finish, which included four birdies on the last six holes in Richmond.

    ‘I was effective in allowing me to play this course the way I wanted to, which was aggressively, so there were some good things that came from it and I also identified some areas I got to work on,’ the American said after his triumph.

    ‘I felt like the last six holes I had an opportunity with the two short par fours and two par fives to make something happen and starting the day I was just trying to get close to with those last six holes and I knew I had some work to do.’

    South Africa’s Retief Goosen managed to secure himself a share of sixth spot after finishing the week on 11 under, while Ernie Els, who won the SAS Championship on Tour a week earlier, concluded his week a further stroke back on 10 under.
