It took 20 years for Phil Mickelson to win an event in Europe.

The 43-year-old California native birdied the first playoff hole to fend off Branden Grace and win the Scottish Open in Inverness on the European Tour.

Mickelson could’ve won the match in regulation, but three-putted the 72nd hole.

In the playoff, “Lefty” took control immediately, hitting a shot from 45 yards that landed within a foot of the 18th pin, leaving Grace with a 25-footer to match him. Grace’s putt rolled past the hole.

The Cincinnati Reds have agreed to a one-year contract for $3.06 million with young right-hander Mike Leake.

The 25-year-old California native will be competing in the upcoming Spring Training camp for a spot in the starting rotation.

Leake will make an additional $25,000 if he reaches 180 innings pitched.

The Arizona State product made $507,500 in 2012, when he went 8-9 with a 4.58 ERA in 30 starts, a career-high.

Since his MLB debut in April of 2010, Leake has a record of 28-22, with a 4.23 ERA and 325 strikeouts.

Leake asked for $3.5 million and the Reds offered $2.650,000 in arbitration.

Reds players still offering arbitration include Mat Latos, Homer Bailey and Shin-Soo Choo.

Bigelow’s 81-yarder was a career-long. It was Cal’s longest play from scrimmage this season, surpassing Daniel Lasco’s 77-yarder the week before vs. Southern Utah. It is the longest rush since Jahvid Best’s 93-yard touchdown run at UCLA in 2009. He ended the day with a personal-best 160 rushing yards and 230 all-purpose yards. His previous career best in all-purpose yards was 137 against Presbyterian last year.

The 5’10, 190-pounder was named to the CFPA Special Teams Trophy watch list prior to this season.
