Correct response: Who is Phil Mickelson?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
Probably the best golfer of the last 30 years not named Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, best known for his left-handed swing, is also a popular celebrity endorser in the United States, including Callaway golf (there’s a lot of money in golf, especially as rich white men tend to play a lot of it), and accounting firm KPMG (Phil has worn KPMG on his hat for over a decade, leading to confusion among more casual sports fans about Phil potentially being a middle name and then wondering what the K stands for.)
Mickelson should also have a resurgence over the next 18 to 24 months, as 50 is the minimum age to compete on the PGA Tour Champions tour (formerly the Senior PGA Tour); he won his first start on that tour in August.

- Oftentimes, contestants are more stressed at the end of a full day of taping (or watching episodes being taped) and their performance isn’t as strong compared to if they were fresh. Please remember to be kind to all contestants.
- In Prisoner of Trebekistan, Bob Harris said that it’s just as important to know what you don’t know. And props to Sameer for knowing that he didn’t know sports, betting $0, and ending up a 2-day champion for it.
