Of the 35 times Mickelson and Woods have played together, however, their scoring averages are remarkably close - Woods 69.93, Mickelson 70.06 - and Woods has shot the lower score 16 times, just once more than Mickelson.

Woods then made par on 16 and 17 before hitting two quality shots into the hard par-4 18th, leaving himself 17 feet for birdie.

A two-time victor of an event dubbed the unofficial fifth major, Woods will be in the field for the first time since 2015 when he tees off alongside Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler on Thursday. "I'm like, 'are you serious?' I got a chance to know him by him coming over to the house, going out to dinners, just hanging out, and he's just a great kid". This week, it was pointed out that in 2000-2001, Woods had all the historic major championship trophies on his mantel and THE PLAYERS in 2001, giving him a super slam.

The PGA Tour announced that the duo would be part of the Featured Group coverage during the opening two days in Florida, with 2015 champion Rickie Fowler completing that threeball. "I struggled with it", he said. "It was some of the most impressive golf I've ever seen in my life and I think ever played".

"Desire and hunger (are not lacking) right now and I'm very motivated to keep pushing this (form) more and more". It seems many fans would be fine bypassing the formalities of 72 holes of stroke play, and Woods didn't seem averse to the idea. "And it goes to show you that they weren't there to witness it".

Unfortunately for McIlroy, his attempt to use the final round at Quail Hollow as a confidence booster never materialised. I enjoy either competing with him on the first or second day or if it's the last day. He had a pair of double bogeys, shot 75 and fell seven shots behind. "We have always looked and said, 'Where is he on the board?' That's what Arnold and Jack used to do all the time". "I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again, because I didn't know if I'd be able to have it". It's a real challenge for me. So trying to piece it together and make some improvements before next week.

"May try and putt out as much as I can before Tiger does, just so that I'm not hitting while the circus is moving on, but it's going to be fun", he added. As Woods began to respond, the reporter said they had faced off head-to-head 32 times, but that's not what Tiger was talking about.

"I'll probably be on the couch in my hotel room watching that one in the afternoon", admitted Justin Thomas, who will be finished with his round on Thursday by the time Mickelson and Woods tee off at 1:52 p.m. ET. "I'll still be grinding, because that course does demand everything".
