Tiger Woods can't wait to play with Phil Mickelson again

Wells Fargo Championship- Round Three

09 May, 2018

- It's been a while.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are in the same grouping for the first two rounds of the Players Championship.

This week's PLAYERS features 50 of the top 50 players in the FedExCup, and the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

But Day, who won the 2016 Players Championship, says the fire has returned as he enters a new chapter in his career.

Woods, 42, and Mickelson, 47, have combined to win 19 major championships and a total of 122 PGA Tour titles.

Woods had the ideal responses to questions about Mickelson's challenge.

Additionally, when asked about Mickelson's joke about how Woods might be too scared to take him on, Woods had a comeback ready. "We give each other needle. Not just the pairings, but just about things in general". For years, as Nos.

1 pt win Paul Casey 33/1: this track should suit this excellent tee to green Brit.

On Tuesday, Mickelson added a playful touch to the proceedings.

Has Fowler heard the stories?

"Now it's different. I feel better, and my short game has turned around", he said. I hated it the first time.

"He offered numerous times to help me out with technique and just about it", Woods said.

"I'm just not that comfortable with anything right now". Woods has a 79-43 lead in PGA Tour victories, 14-5 in the majors.

In 2001, Woods famously made his long "better than most" putt at the par-3 17th during the third round with Mickelson as witness.

"We don't really get paired together", Woods said.

So much so that Mickelson said on Tuesday morning, "Why don't we just bypass all the ancillary stuff and just go head-to-head and have kind of a high-stakes, winner-take-all match?" We've been going at it for the better part of over 20 years and it's fun for both of us to be able to do that. You've got to plot your way around, and pars aren't so bad around there most of the time. And in 2007, Mickelson began working with swing coach Butch Harmon, who had worked with Woods early in his career. "Yeah, I'll definitely-I play early Thursday, so I'll probably be in the couch in my hotel room, watching that one in the afternoon". "I struggled with it", Woods said.

Just how good was Woods? That's when Phil Mickelson addressed the media and said forget the tournament, let's go Tiger-Lefty heads up for some, uh, denominations. "Fifteen years ago my record against him sucked, and now it's OK". "You look at it and say, 'How am going to going to beat this?' There was a stretch there for a numbers of years that it was so impressive that it was hard to imagine that it was actually happening, that he was hitting some of the shots that he was hitting and playing that well".

Woods sometimes allows his thoughts to drift to that golden era. Mickelson went on to win the Players shortly thereafter. To hold all those events concurrently was special.

"I'm hitting the ball well enough, especially off the tee, that there's no reason not to be aggressive". As for the level of excellence Woods reached when he set or tied 27 TOUR records in 2000, and when he owned almost every important title in golf in 2001, Fowler can only listen to the stories and shake his head.

"When I was trying to deal with my back and try to come back and wasn't very good, he always texted me some really encouraging words".
