Phil Mickelson says Tiger Woods played best golf ever

Phil Mickelson says Tiger Woods played best golf ever

In his past two appearances, though, Woods struggled to make the cut at the Masters and the Wells Fargo Championship, and he finished tied for 55th Sunday at the latter event.

Woods took the golfing world by storm after winning the 1997 Masters and proceeded to win 14 majors over the next 11 years. It will be the first time Woods and Mickelson have played together at The Players since Woods first won the tournament in 2001.

"Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me", he said, pausing for laughter, "but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round".

The long-time rivals, who have been paired together 32 times over 21 PGA stroke-play events, are seldom paired together, in part to spread more popular players across different tee times and areas of the course during tournaments. "It sucked to have to play against him, it really did".

Woods has made a relatively encouraging return to the PGA Tour in 2018 and will look to build on his progress at The Player's Championship that gets underway on Thursday, yet Harmon suspects the glories of yesteryear may never return for the one-time king of golf.

"I don't know how it's going to play out, but I just know that we seem to be bringing out the best in each other", said Mickelson.

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

The incident occurred during the Raptors' 105-103 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday at Quicken Loans Arena. Miles his first start and put Serge Ibaka back with the first five after using him in a reserve role in Game 3.

That Woods and Phil Mickelson once had one of golf's most intense rivalries is as well known as the mutual antipathy that existed while it was going on.

With The Players - the flagship tournament of the PGA Tour - next up for McIlroy, the journey on to Jacksonville will see him working over the next few days.

Mickelson had earlier offered effusive praise of just how powerful Woods was in his prime.

"I'm close", said Woods. Woods shot 66 that day on his way to his first Players title. "You've got to give time to people and sometimes you don't get a lot of time to yourself", he stated. "His mom and dad are fantastic, and just to have dinner with him to celebrate, that's very special when you're able to do that, and for him to share with mom and dad like that I think was probably even more special".

"I didn't putt well again", Woods said of his performance Sunday (via golf.com). "And it goes to show you that they weren't there to witness it". That theme took on more significance when the two - twice - paired horribly at the 2004 Ryder Cup. It's also worth noting that all three players in this week's marquee threesome were asked about the possibility months ago, according to Fowler, and all three embraced the opportunity.

They'll be joined by Rickie Fowler when play begins at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday. I think that it was great to move it to May. I mean, the only time I can remember I think is the PGA and the U.S. Open in '08.
