Phil Mickelson won the British Open last weekend, and the obligatory victory tour has taken him — and that adorable Claret Jug — on quite the ride already.

It started Sunday, with the jug being officially indoctrinated as a member of the Mickelson family shortly after he finished off the win at Muirfield, in Scotland:

By Wednesday, Mickelson had made it back to his native Southern California. He stopped by the headquarters of his sponsor, Callaway Golf, looking radical in shorts and flip-flops with the jug in tow:

Friday, it was off to The Big Apple to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. And look what silver trinket was there at his side:

Pretty nice week for Mickelson and his new son. Wife Amy approves of this message:

Still, Mickelson has a long way to go to get as rowdy in celebration as the Chicago Blackhawks .
