The first Players Championship pairing reveal is juicy

  • Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will tee it up together at TPC Sawgrass

It was during a time that Woods was at his dominant best - the 14-time major champion went on to capture the Masters two weeks later for his fourth consecutive major title, dubbed the "Tiger Slam". Not at the biggest non-major of the year, and particularly not playing alongside Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson.

The 42-year-old said: "Twelve months ago if you would have said: 'You're going to be playing The Players and you're going to have had a chance to win a couple of events, ' I would have said: 'You've got to be kidding me; I can barely walk.' I'm just so thankful to be able to have this opportunity again because I didn't know if I would ever have".

"Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me", he said, pausing for laughter, "but I just think it would be something that would be really fun for us to do, and I think there would be a lot of interest in it if we just went straight to the final round". For that, he needed to replicate his stunning final round of 2010 - when a closing 62 saw him leapfrog through the field to claim the title - but, this time, the Northern Irishman was unable to reproduce any of that drama and ultimately was confined to the role of bit player.

The last time Lefty and Tiger played together in a tournament was during the first and second rounds of the 2014 PGA Championship where Mickelson finished second and Woods missed the cut.

"I had no idea where the ball was going today; especially off the tee", Day said afterwards.

On Tuesday, Mickelson added a playful touch to the proceedings. Woods was asked about Mickelson, who had thrown shade his way earlier in the day.

Jason Greenblatt, Trump's Middle East envoy, will also attend the ceremony, as will Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Also on Monday, Jerusalem began putting up road signs pointing to the "US Embassy", replacing signs for the consulate.

"That's why it's going to be so hard for Tiger Woods to win another major, never mind take his total from the fourteen he has now to the levels Jack got to".

Woods will be taking part in The Players' Championship next week. The more he plays, the sharper he'll get.

"Our relationship has certainly gotten a lot closer", Woods said. Although Woods' accomplishments are the stuff of legend, he and Mickelson crossed paths rarely in those prime years. Day's tee shot on the par-3 17th hole might be the one he remembers for some time.

Perhaps more than any other player, Mickelson can appreciate what Woods accomplished during his prime.

"I'm hitting the ball well enough to contend, to win this golf tournament", he said. I look at 2000 as being kind of the benchmark at the U.S. Open as being the greatest golf I've ever witnessed and I believe has ever been played. All three in their pairing are former Players winners.

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. 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.
