Tiger Woods is the best we've seen, claims Phil Mickelson

Tiger Woods is the best we've seen, claims Phil Mickelson

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are grouped together at The Players Championship this week, providing plenty of intrigue for golf fans.

In 2005 at Doral, the two set out on Sunday in the final group, with Woods closing in 66 to clip Mickelson by a stroke, in what is considered one of the decade's most entertaining duels. Mickelson said, sharpening his needle directed to the side of Woods. "We are normally paired up on the weekend if we are both playing well, and even that's a rarity".

"I love that we're paired together", Mickelson said.

The 14-time major champion Woods says Day has developed the ability to win without his best stuff during two US PGA Tour victories this year, which have propelled the Australian seven spots up the rankings to No.7. "I think we should just do something on our own and get after it". 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. I felt I drove it pretty decent but I made nothing and the chances I did have I missed them all.

According to ShotLink, Woods and Mickelson have gone head-to-head 35 times, with Woods carding the better score 16 times, Mickelson prevailing 15 times, and the two battling to a tie four times.

The next one is the Players Championship, where he will play Thursday and Friday with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.

The last time Woods and Mickelson were paired together at the Players Championship was in 2001, when Woods won and was at the height of his dominance.

Woods is around a 33/1 betting outsider at the TPC Sawgrass, a course where he twice has won the PGA Tour's flagship event - in 2001 and again in 2013. Exhibit A was Day's tee shot on the 17th that clanged off the flagstick setting up a birdie on the toughest hole at Quail Hollow.

Where there once was some jealousy and tension between Woods and Mickelson when Woods was breaking opposing players' wills on a weekly basis with his sheer dominance, there now is mutual respect and friendship, built and fostered during the recent Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup competitions, when Woods served as an assistant captain because of his back injuries.

"No, no, as I said, it's going to be fun playing with him again".

"On top of that, when you guys all saw how I was chipping so poorly, my nerve and my back was not doing very good and I was flinching a lot, he offered numerous times to help".

Times were not announced, and the only other grouping released was one that includes Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
