Anyone who had PGA Tour rookie Adam Long outlasting World Golf Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson on Sunday at the Desert Classic, raise your hand? Yeah, that's what we thought.

It was supposed to be the Lefty Show on Sunday in Palm Springs. The Desert Classic might not have a title sponsor, but it certainly has a headliner, if not a patron saint. Mickelson loves to make this event his first tournament each calendar year, and this time around the 48-year-old was definitely the opening act—flirting with 59 during Thursday's opening round. But when he burned the edge for birdies to take the outright lead on the 17th and 18th holes at the Stadium Course at PGA West on Sunday, he left an opening for a 31-year-old rookie who had made just five starts in his tour career to walk off the stage with the title. And wouldn't you know it, he did, making an 18th-hole birdie to finish off a Sunday 65 to win by one.

Suffice it to say, Long claimed the biggest payday of nascent tour career, winning $1.062 million from the $5.9 million purse. But can you guess how much he increased his career earnings by? How about 7,927.24 percent. (We're not making that up; Long's previous career earnings on the PGA Tour were $13,568.)

As for the rest of the field, well here's the prize money earned for every player who played all four rounds this week in California.
