“Phil has contributed to that in a very positive way over two decades and he is exactly what you like to see in a player.
“If everybody conducted themselves like Phil, week-in and week-out, we would be stronger yet.
Mickelson said “My thanks go to those who voted me into the Hall of Fame. It really is a tremendous honour to be mentioned alongside the greats of the game.”
