Did that really happen?

Yes it did, and it was one of the most memorable moments in recent golfing memory.

For those who remember Jack Nicklaus winning The Masters in 1986 at age 46 and Tiger Woods snapping a drought of winning majors in 2019 when he captured The Masters, what took place on Sunday rivals those moments with how improbable it was and the way it warmed the hearts of millions who watched.

Phil Mickelson turned back the clock and at age 50, becoming the oldest player to win a major championship in golf when he captured the PGA Championship in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

On the 18th hole after Mickelson hit his approach shot onto the green, a mob of adoring people followed behind as Mickelson made a triumphant walk to the green.

The moment also set Twitter on fire, with various celebrities tweeting their congratulations.

Here’s a sampling of tweets below.

Congrats @PhilMickelson on the big win!! 🎉🎉 Us 50 yr old lefties now have a renewed hope. Don’t even worry about not thanking me for all the great advise I gave you on laying off sugar and using my workout plan when you caddied for me at Pebble. I get it, family first. 😛. pic.twitter.com/MirfR1LTLy
