TROON, Scotland — Phil Mickelson was 16 feet away from a place in history he wouldn't have to share with anyone.
Fans watched from a rooftop balcony. Royal Troon members strained to see out the window from the clubhouse behind the 18th green. Jack Nicklaus usually doesn't watch golf on TV, but he made an exception for this moment.
In 436 majors held over the last 156 years, no one had ever shot 62.
The corporate battle over the control of Augusta television stations will end within 30 days when Media General, which owns ABC-affiliated WJBF, pays $700,000.

LOUISVILLE, Ga. -- Searchers combing Jefferson County in recent weeks have found much of the wreckage of the two F-16 fighter jets that crashed last month.
Two larger objects, however, have eluded them -- a pilot’s ejection seat and a windshield canopy.
“Keep in mind that these items may be disfigured from the crash,” an Air Force spokesman said. “If you find anything you believe may be aircraft wreckage, please call 911 and relay the description and location of the items.”
Jason Eller is leaving Augusta University to become the new head baseball coach at Georgia College.
The Bobcats announced Eller’s hiring Wednesday. He’ll be formally introduced Thursday as the ninth coach in program history.
Eller’s fiery personality and dedication to recruiting sparked Augusta’s drastic turnaround in just three years as Jaguars coach. He inherited a program that went 10-38 in 2013, including just three Peach Belt Conference wins, and experienced a winning season at 29-22 and national ranking in 2016.
