Phil Mickelson relishing Tiger Woods grouping at Players Championship
09 May, 2018, 01:25 | Author: Donnie King
It will be the first time Woods and Mickelson have played in the same group since the 2014 PGA Championship. After a final-day 74, his first birdie-free round in a non-major in nearly four years, he told CBS Sports his putter was his Achilles heel. I just didn't hit good putts, and on top of that, the ones I did hit well, I didn't have enough speed on them. "It was just a bad week and the good news is that you wipe your hands clean and move on to the next one". Woods' golf game was always easy to appreciate. Play starts on Thursday.
So when Woods was told about Mickelson's jab questioning whether he wanted a piece of him, Woods knew exactly where to go.
But if swift greens are his elixir, the fastest greens he has seen to date weren't his remedy.
Woods won that US Open at Pebble Beach by 15 strokes and the record-shattering romp launched a run forever known as the "Tiger Slam" in which he also captured the 2000 British Open, becoming at 24 the youngest player to complete a career Grand Slam, the 2000 PGA Championship and 2001 Masters to hold all four major titles at once.
To judge from his recent results, Tiger Woods may not be much of a factor during the final two rounds of The Players Championship this week, assuming he makes the cut. "I need to do some practice with my putter I know those greens (at Sawgrass), know the putts.I will be grinding and working on my swing", he said. "Every interview we hear he talks about his speed and how far he's driving compared to the young guys, but I think if he gets off of that and just gets back to putting the ball in play with the driver and accept whatever distance it is, because he still hits a longway, I think he would play more consistently".
Contrast that with tournament victor Jason Day. He wasn't as efficient from the rough as Tiger, with 10 fewer GIR.
The other featured group is made up of the past three FedExCup champions - reigning champ Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. But he recovered over the final three holes at Quail Hollow - the infamous Green Mile - including birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to carve out the victory. He realized last year, when he finished 138 from five feet or closer, that he needed improvement, and in addition to gaining a healthy body and mind for this year, he carried in his bag an eraser club that proved the difference at Wells Fargo. He's got to put the ball in play off the tee. "And for me to be able to play with a person I've gone against for over two decades, it's a lot of fun". It really did. 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.
