If you’re a fabulously successful Tour pro, widely traveled and wealthy beyond belief, what courses remain on your bucket list?

For Phil Mickelson, not a single one.

In advance of last week’s Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, the Boston Globe conducted a poll of nearly 100 Tour players, asking them to name the top courses on their must-play ledger.

Most pros ticked off at least a few.

Geoff Ogilvy, for instance, has National Golf Links, Crystal Downs and Pasatiempo on his radar.

Jonathan Byrd cited Pine Valley, San Francisco Golf Club and Royal Dornoch.

Matt Kuchar and J.J. Henry named The Country Club in Brookline, Mass., as a great track they’ve yet to see.

How about you, Phil?

“I’ve played them all,” Mickelson replied. “All the ones I’ve wanted to, anyway.”

Phil's already played hundreds of spectacular golf courses, and he'll play many more before he retires.  Other than winning the US Open and a Ryder Cup or two, I doubt his bucket list has much to do with golf.

Yikes.  I think I'd add a few more.  Something spooky about reaching the end of your bucket list, you know.

No you haven't - what about the most exclusive golf club in the World ? Balmoral Castle in Scotland......you don't get invites or you don't get a chance to pay your way onto it......there's few others Phil.

Phil - you havent lived until you've hopped the fence at the local muni at 1AM and drank beer while playing barefoot glowball golf until the grounds crew shows up at 5:30
