There is no better compliment when your peers congratulate you on a job well done. Fans, reporters and analysts can say just about anything about the way you work, but when the guys that were out on the same golf course are talking about how impressive you played, it really boosts your accomplishment.
That happened on Sunday after Phil Mickelson posted a final round 66 to wrap up his first British Open title. It tied the low round of the week and ended with Mickelson making four birdies over his last six holes.
Here is what a lot of his fellow PGA Tour players said about his round.
66 from Phil today is ridiculous. Best golf I've ever seen. #boss

Great playing Phil Michelson. — Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) July 21, 2013
Phil Mickelson is a class act and his name on the Claret Jug is now golf history! Incredible finish for one of golf's all-time best!

So pumped for Phil right now!! — Rickie Fowler (@RickieFowlerPGA) July 21, 2013
Couldn't be happier for Phil. I know he has been practicing as hard as ever and was really crushed after the US Open. Great to see him win

Amazing! Well done Phil. Couldn't be happier for you and Bones — Geoff Ogilvy (@geoffogilvy) July 21, 2013

U.S. Open week is but a week away, and while golf's longest day might be kicking off this Monday, most of the names we've come to know in the golf world are already in the field at Merion.
The odds for the second major of 2013 have been updated over at golfodds.com, and Tiger Woods is still the clear favorite to win his 15th major championship but his odds have loosened up a bit.
A month ago Tiger was a 7/2 favorite at Merion, but after his play at the Memorial this past week where he shot 8-over for the tournament, good enough for a T-65, he moved to a 9/2 favorite. Rory McIlroy, who also struggled at Muirfield Village, finishing T-57, is a 15/1 favorite to win his third major championship while Memorial champion Matt Kuchar has moved up to 20/1 to win his first major at Merion.
The rest of the odds are after the jump. What value do you see on the board?

The Players Championship might have just ended, but with Tiger Woods snagging his fourth PGA Tour victory of 2013 it seems not calling him the favorite at next month's U.S. Open is downright clueless.
Las Vegas agrees, and with the new odds comes an even heavier betting burden for Woods at 7/2 (he was a 9/2 favorite less than a month ago). Rory McIlroy is still behind him at 12/1, with Lee Westwood snagging the third spot at 20/1 despite that whiff during his third round at the Players.
The rest of the odds are below, with some fairly juicy numbers expected for a fun Open at Merion.

Tee times are out for the 2013 Players Championship, and be prepared to see some of the biggest names in the game all playing together.
Tiger Woods will be paired with Matt Kuchar and Brandt Snedeker, but that might not even be the most marquee threesome that plans to take on TPC Sawgrass come Thursday morning.
Phil Mickelson is paired with Justin Rose and Webb Simpson, while Rory McIlroy will go out with Adam Scott and Steve Stricker.
The pairings just keep getting better with the likes of Graeme McDowell, Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson going out together and Rickie Fowler, Hunter Mahan and Jim Furyk highlighting a very American threesome.
The rest of the groupings and tee times are after the jump, so check out which group looks the most appealing for golf's fifth major.

The Masters just wrapped up on Sunday evening, and while there is still plenty to talk about, it wouldn't be sports if we didn't look ahead.
The U.S. Open is just 59 days away, and the odds are out on the second major of the year. Tiger Woods is the betting favorite at 9/2 (Note: he opened at 5/1), with Rory McIlroy coming in at 10/1 and Lee Westwood at 20/1. Masters champion Adam Scott is right behind those names at 25/1, with all the others after the jump.

On Monday we gave you the finalized odds for the 2013 Masters. Tiger Woods is the obvious favorite, with Rory McIlroy improving his number with his play last week at the Valero Texas Open and Phil Mickelson doing himself some favors right behind McIlroy.
But it isn't a big sporting event if there aren't crazy bets to make. Rory versus Tiger for the week? Sure. Winning score? Awesome! Will Adam Scott finish 19th or better? Count me in!
The odds and props are brought to us by golfodds.com and trust me, it's worth looking at and maybe sending to a buddy to see what he likes.
Personally, I like Louis Oosthuizen at 30-to-1 to win, Jason Dufner over Webb Simpson for the week, and Mickelson to finish 10th or better.

It is finally Masters week, and while we've been keeping our eyes on the odds over the last few months, the final numbers are here and Tiger Woods is still well ahead of the rest of the field.
Woods lands at a 3-to-1 favorite to win, while Rory McIlroy's play last week in San Antonio made him the only other player with single digit odds at 8-to-1. Phil Mickelson rounds out the top three at 10-to-1, with a host of big names coming in behind them.
We've asked before and we will ask again; what player do you like to win considering their odds? Let us know in the comments, and check out the full list of odds after the jump.

I hope you're sitting down and not holding a hot beverage because I'm going to tell you something pretty exciting; we are just seven days from Masters week!
Yes, the Masters are basically upon us, and with that comes updated Masters odds. Who is the favorite? Well, Tiger Woods by a mile. He's still 3-to-1 to win his fifth green jacket, with Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson both coming in at 10-to-1 and a number of other big names behind him.
I still love Louis Oosthuizen at 25-to-1 and don't mind Ian Poulter at 40-to-1. What value do you see on the board?

The Tampa Bay Championship didn't do a ton for the odds at next month's Masters (Luke Donald, who is now 25-to-1, finished T-4 at Copperhead), but there were a few changes.
Tiger Woods is still the big favorite to win his fourth Masters (his last green jacket was in '05), with Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson both coming in at 10-to-1. The rest of the numbers are below, and as we inch just a few short weeks from the PGA Tour's trip to Augusta National it seems time to start looking at some of our favorites.
Personally, Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen, the 2012 playoff participants, look good at 30-to-1, as does Graeme McDowell at 50-to-1.
The rest of the odds are below, so let us know which players you like to snag the first major of 2013.

Last time we checked, Tiger Woods was a 5-to-1 favorite to snag next month's Masters (if you're looking for a handy-dandy Masters countdown clock, we have one right here). But after his performance this past weekend at Doral, the odds have moved even more in his favor.
Tiger is now 4-to-1, with Rory McIlroy slipping to 9-to-1 despite his final round 65 on Sunday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Phil Mickelson comes in at 10-to-1, and then there is a host of big names after those three.
