Mickelson Trying Not To Look Ahead At Yet Another US Open Chance

  • Tiger Woods beat Rocco Mediate in a Monday 18-hole play-off at Torrey Pines in 2008

- That victory was Woods' last at a major. "There's always something that isn't quite right, and that's where we, as players, have to make adjustments", he said. "And then, you know, it definitely would be awesome to get my second major". "I keep on promising my daughter that I'll bring home trophies", Reed said.

"Golf is always frustrating", Woods told reporters on Tuesday at Shinnecock Hills, where the US Open begins on Thursday.

"I was 1-year-old in the first, and I was 10 in the second", said the three-time major victor and 2015 U.S. Open champ.

No player deserves a US Open triumph more than Phil Mickelson who has finished 2nd in no fewer than a staggering six US Open events - most recently five years ago at Merion, while back in 2004 he was runner-up at a certain Shinnecock Hills.

"There are two ways to deal with hostility - either you back off it, or you embrace it and get stronger".

"I know that I can play well in the championship", Mickelson said.

He spent 47 consecutive weeks at No. 1 the year after winning his major, and had only one good chance.

"I think everyone realizes it's different when he (Woods) turns up", said former world number one Day, no longer in awe of Woods the person after almost a decade on tour, but still in awe of his achievements, which include 79 PGA Tour victories. "And then I like to feel that in my fingers when I grab my other putter, the one you've seen me putt with for most of those years, and have that same swing".

Asked about the video of his arrest and how his life has changed, Woods replied, "It's gotten better".

"Staying on the dinghy helps", Woods said.

Dustin Johnson, the 2016 U.S. Open champion, regained his spot as the top-ranked golfer in the world with his win on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The Aberdeen, Scotland, native will tee off just after noon, Central time, with Noah Goodwin and Kenny Perry of the United States.

"You get a little traffic, you get maybe a little fender bender. there's a good chance that someone might miss their (tee) time".

"I worked on it pretty hard this past week. Finishing with a hole-out on the last was definitely special, and it was a cool way to end the day".

He can only hope for a different outcome at Shinnecock Hills.

"I like it", he said.

Woods, who is contesting the US Open for the first time since 2015, reportedly arrived at the course late on Sunday afternoon and wasted little time in getting a look.

Woods, however, came closest among the top players to offering just a whiff of criticism. "So the challenge has been to shut it down and get some rest". Rose has won at least somewhere in the world every year since 2010, and he has won on prestigious courses - Muirfield Village, Congressional, Aronimink, Doral - and he was one putt away from adding Augusta National to that list.

From Sag Harbour to the east, Woods will be travelling against the worst of the traffic.

He said U.S. Open-style golf fits his game because he enjoys shooting around par, hitting long irons into greens, and playing steady. The Open Championship, the oldest championship, typically links golf course, a different style of golf altogether, really playing in conditions.

Spieth: "It's the first I've heard of that being an option".
