The American golfer Phil Mickelson has shown he's ready to defend his U.S. Masters title by breaking a year long victory drought with a three-shot win at the Houston Open.

Mickelson shot a seven-under-par 65 in the final round to finish with a tournament-record winning total of 20-under-par.

It's the left handers 39th PGA tour title and is his first win since last year's Masters at Augusta.
