Putting woes continue as Tiger Woods fails to birdie at Quail Hollow

In 2001, Woods famously made his long "better than most" putt at the par-3 17th during the third round with Mickelson as witness.
Speaking to the media on Tuesday, Mickelson was asked the prospects of playing with Tiger, and, somehow, the five-time major victor managed to further hype the vaunted pairing. "Now, I don't know if he wants a piece of me, 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".
The long-time rivals, who have been paired together 32 times over 21 PGA stroke-play events, are seldom paired together, in part to spread more popular players across different tee times and areas of the course during tournaments. 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 round was notable for Wood's failure to produce a single birdie, only the sixth time in his PGA Tour career that he'd completed a round (in regular tournaments outside of the Majors) without managing a birdie or an eagle. "And for me to be able to play with a person I've gone against for over two decades, it's a lot of fun".

That Woods and Phil Mickelson once had one of golf's most intense rivalries is as well known as the mutual antipathy that existed while it was going on.
Woods cracked up. "Whatever the Masters champion is wearing I will wear", he said. Although Woods' accomplishments are the stuff of legend, he and Mickelson crossed paths rarely in those prime years. Of 56 attempts at hitting the fairway, Woods was successful only 25 times, meaning his iron play was stressed better than half the time. I would never say Tiger isn't going to do anything, he's proven people wrong his whole career, but I think it's a lot more hard than it has been in the past.
Woods has always been more effective on surfaces that score high on the Stimpmeter.
"It's not so bad when you miss the greens if you miss them in the correct spots".
Their most famous pairing was when they were partners in the 2004 Ryder Cup, and that didn't end all that well.
Animosity aside (be it real or perceived), the first two rounds at TPC Sawgrass are still must-see opportunities, even if that means your couch may be the best vantage point.
"Phil and I have a great banter". "I think he's still enamoured with distance with the driver, if he were to back off the speed and not try to hit it so far, just try and put it in play, he would have a better chance of winning".
