Tiger on possible head-to-head money match with Phil: “We’ll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable”

Published

on

As you have probably heard, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are paired together for the Thursday and Friday rounds at The 2018 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. It’s only Tuesday, and the two living legends and long-time rivals have already started talking trash.

When talking on Tuesday about a potential head-to-head, high stakes match against Tiger, Phil said, “I don’t know if he wants a piece of me.”

Shots fired?

Tiger, when asked about Phil’s response, said, “Well, first of all, big picture.” Of course, he’s implying the whole 79 vs. 43 PGA Tour wins thing. Ouch.

He continued…

“No, no, as I said, it’s going to be fun playing with him again,” Tiger said. “We have both done this throughout our careers. We have always looked at each other and said, where is he on the board. That’s what Arnold and Jack used to do all the time. They’d always try and find, okay, what’s — what’s Jack at. And the same thing with Jack, where’s Arnie at. It’s been either way for our entire careers. Now that we have an opportunity to play against each other again on the first day when the gun blows, it’s going to be fun. I enjoy either competing with him on the first or second day or if it’s the last day. It’s always been a blast, and he’s one hell of a competitor, and it’s always going to be a challenge to try and beat him.”

Yea, but what about that head-to-head, high stakes match, Tiger?

“I’m definitely not against that. We’ll play for whatever makes him uncomfortable.”

Oh, wow. But, who would win that match? Let’s put it to a vote…

In a head-to-head, high-stakes match, who do you think would win?

    If it is based on current tournament, I think Phil game is in great shape, whereas Tiger is still in process of getting his game back. A few more months and it gets much closer. Phil in a nail biter!

    Speaking of stories. Jason Day has really gained weight. Tubby needs to slow down.

    It would be a hoot to watch, but I don’t think the Tiger has the game, even with his new sooner dooper prototype Irons that he has not mastered yet,,,,, or will he ever? However the Tiger faithful are hopeful,,, Good Luck Tiger Lovers.

    But it is all in fun,, isn’t it ?

        In all fairness, I figured the casino probably does have this bet. I checked. And the ACTUAL odds at this time are much closer. Phil is still a small favorite to win the matchup.

        Phil -125
        Tiger +105
