Phil Mickelson says he drank $40,000 bottle of wine from championship trophy

Only the best for Phil Mickelson.

On Monday, the southpaw arrived at this week's Open Championship to return the trophy he won for finishing in first place last year. Mickelson also revealed that he once filled the Claret Jug with a $40,000 bottle of 1990 Romanee-Conti wine. Because anything less would have just been disgraceful to put in the vessel.

“One of the things that I stressed is that we have to treat the Claret Jug with reverence and respect that it deserves and only put good stuff in it. There was no bad stuff allowed. And that was the best bottle that was ever put in there.”

If Mickelson doesn't end up winning the Open Championship again, he has definitely set the bar high for the next winner in terms of treating the trophy.
