ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) -- Phil Mickelson has been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame for 42 wins and four majors in a career that is still going.

Mickelson was inducted along with two-time major champion Sandy Lyle of Scotland, writer Dan Jenkins, British player and broadcaster Peter Alliss and LPGA player Hollis Stacy. The induction ceremony Monday night at the World Golf Village brought the Hall of Fame membership to 141.

Jenkins and Allis delivered the humor. Mickelson talked about his career through a timeline of family and friends who helped him along way. In a rare moment, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem spoke before Mickelson was introduced to mention his achievements off the course in projecting such a strong image.
