Worth Another Look

Golf fans will get another chance to watch Phil Mickelson post his record round of 59 at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in November when The Golf Channel rebroadcasts Lefty's win at the exclusive event Jan. 11-12, 2005.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- The 22nd PGA Grand Slam of Golf, featuring Phil Mickelson's dazzling record-59 performance, will be rebroadcast in the U.S. and Canada in primetime Tues., Jan. 11 (first round) and Wed., Jan. 12 (final round), at 7:30 p.m. EST on The Golf Channel.

The PGA Grand Slam of Golf, which showcases the winners of the year's four major championships, is the game's most exclusive event. It was contested Nov. 23-24, 2004 and hosted for the 11th consecutive year at Poipu Bay Golf Course & Hyatt Regency Kauai Resort & Spa in Kauai, Hawaii.

Mickelson, the Masters Champion, made his PGA Grand Slam of Golf debut, and was joined by U.S. Open Champion Retief Goosen, British Open Champion Todd Hamilton and PGA Champion Vijay Singh, who made his third PGA Grand Slam appearance. Singh is only the fourth player in history to win a PGA Player of the Year award, Vardon Trophy and PGA Championship in the same season, joining an elite list that includes Ben Hogan (1948), Sam Snead (1949) and Tiger Woods (1999, 2000).

Yet Singh, along with Goosen and Hamilton, found himself in the wake of a career performance by Mickelson, whose 59 featured 24 putts, 14 greens in regulation and just five fairways hit. He recorded 11 birdies, two eagles and five pars.

"It was the greatest round of putting I have ever seen in golf," said TNT Golf Analyst Bobby Clampett. "Truly remarkable."

Singh had other praise, while putting together two impressive rounds of 66.

"Phil outplayed everybody -- or outscored everybody," said Singh. "It was incredible. After about the 12th hole, we were just watching him."

The PGA Grand Slam of Golf features a total purse of $1 million, with the Champion earning $400,000. TNT, one of Turner Broadcasting System's most prominent cable networks, originates the broadcast of the 36-hole stroke-play event. The event is televised to some 88 million U.S. homes by TNT and to more than 100 countries worldwide.

The Golf Channel, co-founded by Arnold Palmer, is available in more than 85 million homes worldwide through cable, satellite and wireless companies. It features a programming schedule that includes more live golf coverage than any other network, as well as news, instruction and original productions.
