    Mickelson's first British Open win translated to ESPN's highest Open overnight

    Phil Mickelson’s three-shot win in the British Open yesterday helped give ESPN its highest final-round rating for the event since it moved to cable. ESPN earned a 3.6 overnight Nielsen rating from 8:00am-1:30pm ET for Mickelson’s come-from-behind win, up 10% from a 3.3 for Ernie Els’ win last year. While it is the highest mark in the four years since the tournament went solely to cable, yesterday’s rating remains below the 3.9 overnight the final round in ’09 got on ABC. Saturday’s third-round coverage drew a 3.1 overnight rating, up slightly from a 3.0 overnight in ’12.
