Phil Mickelson on career slam: 'That's been a career goal I've had'

Pretty cool interview here with the left-handed magician, Phil Mickelson, where he talks about how much a career grand slam (he gets his first chance to complete it next week at the US Open) would mean to him.

"That's been a career goal that I've had that I haven't really voiced," said Mickelson. "Now that I'm so close to it it's pretty obvious. Those five players are five of the best players in the history of the game."

He's talking about Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Gene Sarazen, and Gary Player -- which we looked at here.

"There have been a number of players that have been one leg shy, certainly I'm one of those guys, too. It's obvious to everyone that the biggest goal I have in my career is to win a US Open."
