Four-time major champion Phil Mickelson was elected to the World Golf Hall of Fame Thursday afternoon, receiving 72 percent of the votes cast.

Mickelson became eligible for the honor after turning 40 last year, and said his enshrinement won’t slow down his quest to reach 50 career victories. He was won 39 tournaments since turning pro in 1992, including three Masters Titles and a PGA Championship.

He has been ranked No. 2 in the world several times, though he has slipped to No. 11 after winning only one tournament so far this year.

Mickelson was born in San Diego, and was a four-time All-American while a student at Arizona State.

To be elected to the Hall of Fame, golfers must receive at least 65 percent of votes cast by journalists, historians and golf dignitaries. After Mickelson, Fred Couples received the second most votes with 38 percent while Davis Love III and Mark O’Meara each received 29 percent.

Mickelson will be inducted on May 7 at the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum in St. Augustine, Fla.
