Phil Mickelson wins Exelon Invitational

Masters champion Phil Mickelson won a sudden-death chip-off Monday in the sixth annual Exelon Invitational.

Mickelson won 11 skins worth $230,000 at Hartefeld National Golf Club in the charity event hosted by U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk.

Furyk decided on the chip-off after the participants went the last eight holes without winning a skin. After watching John Daly hit the ridge on his sudden-death attempt, Mickelson hit his shot above the hole and watched it spin back to within 4 feet as a record crowd of more than 14,000 erupted.

Stuart Appleby and Chad Campbell were unable to better Mickelson's shot.

Campbell finished second with four skins and $27,000. Daly was third with three skins worth $22,500, while Appleby was shut out. The event raised $113,000 for the Philadelphia Girls and Boys Club.

Mickelson won three skins worth $45,000 on No. 10, then imitated his "Masters leap." They were the last skins anyone captured until the playoff.
