  • The Masters- Preview Day 2

The 14-times major champion said he would work on all facets of his game before the Players Championship starts at TPC Sawgrass in Florida on Thursday.

The last time Woods and Mickelson were in the same group was the first two rounds of the 2014 PGA Championship, where the PGA of America determines the groupings. "How many times have we both won on Tour?" We were on opposite tees. We have both done this throughout our careers.

Woods was one of several golfers who began the third round at 2 over par, but he took advantage of playing in the morning under overcast skies and an easier course setup than the previous two rounds.

"We don't get the opportunity to do it very often", Woods, 42, said (via ESPN).

"I hit a few good drives down the middle". Otherwise it just doesn't really happen. "I said, 'Yeah, you and I have the same philosophy in how we approach chipping and how we do it".

Fun was not a word that Woods often used to describe anything but winning in his heyday.

Woods sensed after his round that others would go low, leaving him too far behind to catch them on Sunday.

"It was 12 years between wins here, and so, as y'all know, just looking at my record, I didn't play this place well. It's a real challenge for me", he said.

Favorite Justify finishes first at Kentucky Derby
Here's a breakdown of what you need to know about the favorites before placing your bets on this year's Kentucky Derby. This is a race for 3-year-old female horses, and it traditionally held the day before the Kentucky Derby.

"The biggest thing is, you're playing mental games with yourself".

"It's a good golf course for us to showcase that, and I would love for us to continue this all the way into the weekend, as well".

For Lefty, this is a tale of two rivalries, which in the early years was wildly one-sided.

Day moved up seven spots in the official world golf rankings to number seven after his win, while Woods sits at 92 following his comeback from back surgery.

"I feel like I'm hitting the ball well enough and just trending in the right direction for next week", said Woods, who has won 79 career PGA Tour events and 105 professional tournaments overall. Mickelson is 47, and the oldest of his three children started college a year ago.

Woods and Mickelson have played in the same group 32 times over 21 tournaments, according to the PGA Tour. And he offered numerous times to help me out with technique and just talk about it and philosophy. "You know, I think what M.J. did, getting to the Finals and dominating the league like he did, he did it in a different way than LeBron is doing it, just because of the nature of their body, the build and their game and their mental makeup".

Woods was last paired with Mickelson at The Players in 2001, when the former was mowing down everything in his path. Woods won that event with the help of his "Better than most" putt at the infamous 17th hole, taking the unofficial fifth major just a couple of weeks before completing his "Tiger Slam" at the Masters.
