This is one of those lists that you wouldn’t expect Lefty to be at the top of. After all, Mickelson has never gone this long in a PGA  
Tour season without cracking the top ten on the final leaderboard. Undoubtedly a big reason for his struggles is a pain in his side that has forced him to withdraw from two tournaments already this year. But even a non-100% Mickelson is still pretty good: he has made eight of nine cuts and posted five top-25 finishes. He tied for 12th place at the Shell Houston Open, which netted him $125,440 and a little momentum going into the 2014 Masters, where he has earned three green jackets in the past decade. The career tally for Mickelson is always impressive to read: second on the all-time earnings list at over $73.6 million, 42 Tour victories, and five major titles including last year’s Open Championship.
