Florida - Three-time Masters champ Phil Mickelson headed a group of five people who were inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame on Monday.

Mickelson was joined in the 2012 class by two-time major champion Sandy Lyle, former player-turned broadcaster Peter Alliss, ex-LPGA star Hollis Stacy, and golf reporter Dan Jenkins.

"I would just like to say that since I was a kid and first picked up my golf club, I've been living my dream, and I want to thank you for this great honor tonight," Mickelson said.

Mickelson's superb career has been highlighted by four major championships including Masters titles in 2004, 2006 and 2010. He also won the 2005 PGA Championship.

The 41-year-old American has 40 career PGA Tour wins, including the 2007 Players Championship and the 2009 WGC-CA Championship.

Mickelson received 72 percent of the votes. Only Australia's Greg Norman has earned a higher percentage when he got 80 percent of the votes in 2001.
