This Week In Golf: Jason Day Wins Wells Fargo By Two Strokes
09 May, 2018, 00:51 | Author: Hannah Francis
Frustration was the name of the game for both Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, as their respective attempts to use the final round of the Wells Fargo championship at Quail Hollow as a morale-boosting dress rehearsal ahead of The Players proved to be an elusive ambition for each of them.
Mickelson won The Players shortly after he and Harmon began their partnership.
"We don't get the opportunity to do it very often", Woods, 42, said (via ESPN).
And Woods can't wait to join his long-time rival Mickelson on the course on Thursday. It's as if putting isn't really a skill, even though every player desperately hopes for mastery.
Jason Day birdied two of the last three holes on Sunday to win the Wells Fargo Championship and claim his second title of the year. "I'm doing better as time has gone on", Mickelson said.
Of course, injuries to Woods and the inconsistent play of Mickelson have caused each to slip down the rankings in recent years.
One year they were in the locker room at the Byron Nelson Classic when Mickelson challenged Woods to anything at their disposal. Following that campaign, Woods suffered a number of major injuries and underwent multiple back surgeries, keeping him from competing in all but a relative handful of events and prompting widespread speculation that he might never again contend for a tournament title. "He always texted me some very encouraging words". Woods told of Mickelson sending nothing but encouraging texts when Woods was struggling with his chipping in early 2015 as his back was still ailing. "We're going to get the best players in the world playing, and I think that's all that matters". His final-round 74 was his first score over par in 12 weekend rounds this year. You've got to plot your way around, and pars aren't so bad around there most of the time. "It was the most remarkable golf in the history of the game and I think unrepeatable", said the left-hander.
Perhaps more than any other player, Mickelson can appreciate what Woods accomplished during his prime. That theme took on more significance when the two - twice - paired horribly at the 2004 Ryder Cup. "I look at 2000 as being kind of the benchmark at the U.S. Open and being the greatest golf I've ever witnessed and I believe has ever been played".
Shane Lowry had three birdies and a lone bogey - on the 15th, after driving into a fairway bunker - to close with a 69 for 284, level par, which gave him a tied-35th finish as he moves on to The Players at Sawgrass.
Woods and Mickelson are playing with Rickie Fowler for the first two rounds, Thursday at 1:52 p.m. off the first tee and Friday at 8:27 a.m. off the 10th tee. 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.
