RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Phil Mickelson is the third player and second this year to win his first two starts on the PGA Tour Champions.

Lefty slammed the door on second-round leader Mike Weir with a back-nine surge in the Dominion Energy Charity Classic. Mickelson closed with a 7-under 65 to finish at 17-under, three strokes better than Weir.

Mickelson was a stroke off the tournament record set last year by Miguel Angel Jimenez.
