Phil Mickelson makes a classy move....

Donating all of his winnings this week to hurricane relief, and from one tournament a year for the next five years.

NEW ORLEANS, April 26 (Reuters) - U.S. Masters champion Phil Mickelson plans to donate his winnings from this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans to the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.

Playing his first tournament since his two-shot victory at Augusta National three weeks ago, Mickelson has already contributed $250,000 to the fund.

"This year I want to designate this tournament as the tournament that we give whatever I make to the relief fund," the 35-year-old American told a teleconference on Wednesday.

"And we want to do that for the next five or 10 years, as long as it takes. No one person can do it on his own.

"To see the community, the way everybody is pitching together, to see the enthusiasm and excitement in that everybody knows this is going to get done.

"It's going to take time and it's a tough situation. But it's going to get done."
