Phil Mickelson: This is the best I’ve ever seen Tiger Woods swing the golf club

Published

on

Yesterday, Phil Mickelson tweeted, ”I just played with Tiger today and it is the best I’ve ever seen him swing the club. It is so on plane and solid. I’ll be asking for a shot a side for our Thanksgiving match. I doubt I’ll get it though.”

Patrick Reed would later tell reporters he didn’t think a stroke a side would be enough to give Mickelson a chance.

Mickelson and Reed went out for a practice round with Woods and Bryson DeChambeau at Le Golf National, Tuesday.

Mickelson also made the bold claim that Tiger Woods is swinging the club as well as he ever has.

“It was evident last week when he won, to see the response and the way the people responded to him and the way that people responded to the game, and the excitement level, the energy that he brings. You know, he’s been playing some remarkable golf.”

“This is the best I think I’ve ever seen him swing the club, even going back to 2000, when I thought he was at his best. He’s striking it so solidly that nobody was surprised that has played with him that he won, and I think that now that that first win is out of the way, I think he’s going to start rattling off some more.”

With respect to playing together at this Ryder Cup, Mickelson indicated he would welcome the pairing, although Captain Jim Furyk has remained mum.

    Phil must of spent 1999-2000 wiped out on drugs if he thinks Tiger has never swung the club better. Tiger would of won 30 majors if they hadn’t started making toe up drivers.

    All I want to see is the singles first off the tee…
    Reed vs. Rory

    I like Patrick Reed’s remark about Phil needing more than one a side. It’s funny and cheeky.

    I think it is great Phil and Tiger’s relationship has changed for the better! As far as paired together this week at the Ryder Cup for selfish reasons I want to see it…winning would really quiet some critics. And yes losing a match would be terrible. IMO they can get it done…I’d like to see them in a four-ball match.

    To me the Ryder Cup is the best sporting event of all-including the Super Bowl. Looking forward to Friday…I’m watching it live going to need a lot of coffee!

This time, however, he’s brought along Uncle Jake (9-time PGA Tour winner Peter Jacobsen), and you can check out all of the fun and games the two got up to while catching poor unsuspecting golfers off guard in the embedded tweet below.
