Phil Mickelson is excited about the prospect of playing alongside Tiger Woods in the opening two rounds of The Players Championship and believes they will bring out the best in each other. It's so hard to win any tournament but majors are really hard to win, I don't see anyone ever beating Nicklaus' record of eighteen.

We don't get the opportunity to do it very often. "And it sucked to have to play against him".

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. He mused on the golf industry, mentioning that the current country club model is "not sustainable", and reflected on the peak of his own career: "I mean, I played well, I thought well, I putted well", he said. He's being paired with Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.

Some say the dynamic began to change in 2007, when Mickelson began working with swing coach Butch Harmon, who had worked with Woods earlier in his career. 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. Mickelson closed with a 64 to win the event by two strokes, while Woods struggled to a final-round 75 and a tie for fifth place.

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

Five killed by Gaza Strip blast: Palestinian Ministry of Health
The use of live ammunition by Israel's army has been condemned by the worldwide community and human rights activists. Palestinians sent several stunt kites with incendiary bombs over the border towards Israel on Friday.

Woods shot a two-over 74 for his final round.

Woods has always been more effective on surfaces that score high on the Stimpmeter. "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". "You've got to give time to people and sometimes you don't get a lot of time to yourself", he stated.

"I don't think anybody today who wasn't there that witnessed it, and I don't think anybody before, will ever see that level of play again", Mickelson said of Woods' dominance.

Their most famous pairing was when they were partners in the 2004 Ryder Cup, and that didn't end all that well. And the crowds, I think you notice them a little bit more around this golf course because of how close together everything is. I think that it was great to move it to May. Tuesday Sawgrass saw the latest round of mutual appreciation between a duo who will be playing partners for the first two days of the Players Championship, in what represents a stunning switch in attitudes. "I hit a few good drives that were down the middle or on the sides and happened to catch the rough, but I felt I drove it pretty decent today".
