Looks like Phil Mickelson is making good use of the Wanamaker Trophy

June 02, 2021

The Wanamaker Trophy weighs a stout 27 pounds—and that's before you add any liquid. Good thing 50-year-old Phil Mickelson is in the best shape of his life.

More than a week after becoming the oldest major winner in golf history at the PGA Championship, Mickelson is still holding up his huge prize. To have some celebratory beverages, that is.

Mickelson posted a video of him boozing from the giant silver object on Tuesday night at a birthday celebration for his wife, Amy. And let's just say the Wanamaker is more like the WINEamaker these days.

"I know the wine is good, but there's something about the Wanamaker that gives it a little extra," Mickelson says slyly while turning to the camera. Good for you, Phil. You deserve it after all those calf raises.

Of course, this is not the first time the six-time major champ has sipped some vino from a major trophy. A few years back, Ray Romano told Jimmy Fallon a funny story about drinking from the claret jug to celebrate Mickelson's win at the 2013 Open Championship.

Again, good for Phil. Those trophies are practically begging to be drank from.
