    Golf champ and Hall of Famer, Phil Mickelson, has put his Tuscan-style Rancho Santa Fe, CA home  back on the market for the reduced price of $7.1 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    Mr. Mickelson and wife Amy originally listed the 4.9 acre, 9,500-square-foot, five-bedroom home back in March of 2008 for about $11M. At the time, they had just moved into a larger estate nearby. With no buyers in sight for their former estate, the price was later slashed to $7.2 million before the home was eventually pulled it off the market in May 2011. To prep for an eventual sale, the home underwent some renovations, including the addition of a shower with Baccarat crystal fixtures and hand-laid tile mosaics.

    Located on the west side of the prestigious Covenant community, the single-level estate features two guest homes and offers some of the most stunning, unobstructed sunset views in Rancho Santa Fe, a wealthy enclave of San Diego. A private road leads potential buyers to this incredible, one-of-a-kind, fully custom Tuscan villa. Built entirely on one level, the Mickelson’s home was designed and built with unparalleled attention to detail. Hand-plastered ceilings, a hand-carved fireplace of white Cantera stone, white Calcutta marble imported from Italy, cabinet hardware from Baltica of Romania and Bouvet of France, and a master suite shower featuring a curved-glass enclosure are just some of the amenities.

    The property also includes a trophy room, gym, horseshoe pit and sand-swept putting green.

    Phil and Amy Mickelson bought the home for $6 million in 2001. With this home for sale again, it has us asking “What will Phil Do Next?
