Mickelson confident

HOYLAKE, England - British Open champion Phil Mickelson believes his best is yet to come despite recording only one top-10 finish this year.

Mickelson won the British Open at the 20th attempt last year at the age of 43, just seven days after picking up his first title on British soil in the Scottish Open.

But since then the 44-year-old, dogged by health issues caused by suffering from psoriatic arthritis, has struggled to recapture his best form.

"Obviously it hasn't been a good year," Mickelson admitted yesterday after returning the Claret Jug to R&A officials ahead of his Open defence at Hoylake.

"Normally I would be discouraged or frustrated, but I'm just not. I feel like I've had some good breakthroughs in some areas."
