Tiger Woods I’m getting close to winning Tiger Woods

In 2001, when Woods famously made his famous long putt at the par-3 17th during the third round that elicited the Gary Koch NBC TV call of "better than most, " he was paired with Mickelson.

Mickelson won The Players shortly after he and Harmon began their partnership.

The last time Woods and Mickelson were in the same group was the first two rounds of the 2014 PGA Championship, where the PGA of America determines the groupings.

Mickelson added: "We haven't been paired together in years, and as I look at the cover of the newspaper and the pairing is on there and the excitement that's been going on around here, it gets me thinking, why don't we just bypass all the ancillary stuff of a tournament and just go head to head and just have kind of a high-stake, winner-take-all match?" "We'll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable".

McIlroy, a four-time major victor, was part of the other feature group announced, being joined by Americans Jordan Spieth, a three-time major victor and reigning British Open champion, and Justin Thomas, who won last year's PGA Championship. And I said, yeah, you and I have the same philosophy in how we approach chipping and how we do it. Woods has not played there since 2015.

Mickelson also raised the prospect of having a special one-round showdown with Woods at some point in the future and he believes there would be plenty of interest in it, as indicated by their practice round together at the Masters.

The trio has four Players Championship titles between them.

"I don't think anyone here today, who was not there, witnessed it, and I don't think anyone will ever see that level of play again", Mickelson said Tuesday during his press conference, regarding Woods' most dominant days.

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

Woods closed with a 74 to finish at two-over-par 286 at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, 14 strokes behind victor Jason Day.

Though both players are in their 40s, they're enjoying solid seasons and have a number of fans and fellow pros excited to see them prowl the fairways of TPC Sawgrass together this week.

"Our relationship has certainly gotten a lot closer", Woods said.

"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". He relished the chance to poke fun at Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, who he said makes golf interesting "for people who don't play the game", with the implication obvious.

"It's not so bad when you miss the greens if you miss them in the correct spots". I think that it was great to move it to May.

"We just need to see Tiger show us that he can win on a regular tour stage first, and then maybe that will give him the confidence, but it's extremely hard to win these days, there are so many good players".
