Aging Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson set to resume storied rivalry at U.S. Open

“Phil’s won ump-teen tournaments all around the world and he’s finished second at this event six times. Of all the events, you would think this would be the one event he would have the least chance to win, because of the way he’s driven for most of his career. But that short game of his is off the charts. A U.S. Open is about wedging. He can spray it a little bit here and there, but you have to be able to get it up and down from 100 yards. We’re all gonna face it. And he’s been one of the best of all-time at doing that. So he’s made some of the more difficult pars that you have to make to win this championship. It’s just that he hasn’t, but he’s come so close. For him to be able to somehow pull it off at his age, I don’t think it’s ever been done at that age. But also to complete the career grand slam, it would be an unbelievable task and an unbelievable accomplishment.”
