Post Phil Mickelson vs Tiger Woods rivalry
There has been somewhat of a rivalry between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods these past few years, although it has been Tiger that has won most of the battles. With Tiger woods dominating almost every tournament I always find myself cheering for the underdog versus him. Although you can't really call Phil an underdog when you compare him to the rest of the field.

Will this be Phil's year to give Tiger a run for his money?

or will Tiger dominate again?

Both Tiger and Phil are currently in the field for the Arnold Palmer Invitational March 15-18, 2007. If Mike Weir can't get a victory here I'm hoping Phil can at least better Tiger. Hey I like Tiger, he's a great player and all, I just want the see Phil beat him every time they play in the same tournament.

Then we have the Masters just over 3 weeks away with Phil Mickelson the defending champion.

I believe Phil and Tiger have won 1 tournament each so far this year. Correct me if I'm wrong. I believe Tiger will dominate once again this year. Tiger may start off slow but as the year goes on he'll win tournament after tournament as he did last year. Phil will not successfully defend the Masters and Tiger will be in one of the final groups making a run for the green jacket.

I do not like your Tiger prediction for the Masters Slicer. :lol: I think Phil has just as good of a chance as Tiger in The Masters. It's tough to repeat of course. We'll see what happens this week and leading up to the Masters. I know Tiger has shown consistantly that he is the best in golf. Period. I'd still like to see and I'm pulling for Mike Weir and Phil Mickelson to close out the Masters together on the final day :D

I'm sorry Andrew but I'm a Tiger fan and I believe he will run away with most tournaments this year. The Masters at Augusta is a tough course so anything can happen but Tiger is the easy favorite to pick.

Tiger was in a tie for the lead after day 1 at the Bay Hill Invitational. He's dropped to a tie for 4th right now as early players today passed him but he just started his round so we can expect him to be back on top. Phil Mickelson started tied 82nd today and finished today and moved up to tied 45th.

I think Tiger will win the battle will Phil this weekend. :wink:

Yep it looks like Tiger will win the battle with Phil this weekend at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Tiger started today T13 today so he's dropped from the lead pack but he usually finishes strong. Phil is way back and will just try to have a good round tomorrow and maybe move up a bit in the money.

Phil is currently 2nd on the Money Leaders, leading Tiger Woods by approx. $600,000

I am not an expert on golf but i know I hear about Tiger Woods more often than I do phil mickelson so i will have to take Tiger's side in this rivalry.

Tiger had a great first day this past week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational but didn't finish as good as he would have liked and Phil stayed right in the middle of the pack. I'd still take those pay cheques for playing a weekend of golf.

T22 Tiger Woods 64 73 70 76 283 $ 51,058.33

T36 Phil Mickelson 72 68 72 74 286 $ 25,345.83


Vijay Singh wins the battle in the Tourney, Tiger wins the battle of Tiger vs Phil this weekend. Stay tuned for future match ups.

I thought Tiger was going to make a run over the weekend. He still beat Phil but after such a great first day I thought he had this tourny in the bag.

I'm sure Tiger isn't happy with a $51,058.33 pay check. He's cashing the huge payouts. It's amazing how a couple shots can make a huge difference in how much money you win. One bad drive or one bad putt can cost you thousands, even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I was surprised Tiger wasn't among the leaders on the weekend after such a great start. That's golf for you! You never know what is going to happen. You can go from first one day to last when it is all said and done. 22nd isn't bad at all and the payoff is still more than most make in a year. I'll take it!

Tiger is in the lead heading into the final round at the World Golf Championships-CA Championship. He's at -11 and the next closest is at -7. I don't want to jinx him but it looks like he will cruise to victory.

Tiger Woods definately won the battle in the World Golf Championships-CA Championship ending March 25, 2007.

He won the tournament by two shots, 10 shots better than Phil, and it was the fifth tournament he has 3-peated.

1 Tiger Woods 71 66 68 73 278 $1,350,000.00
T23 Phil Mickelson 77 72 70 69 288 $74,000.00

We'll have to see if Phil can repeat in The Masters at Augusta in two weeks.

Tiger proves once again why he is the best in the game. Another million+ added to his career totals as he wins the tournament for the 3rd year in a row. Phil is going to have to step up his game if he wants to repeat at the Masters Tournament. I know golf is an up and down game and anything can happen from week to week but it's not looking good for him. Phil did have a good final day so maybe he'll take that into Augusta National.

After this weekend and the spitscapade watch out for Sergio to come out flying.
He has a lot to prove and will get a chance to quiet his detractors.

Tiger built up a lead and just coasted to victory. Phil did have a pretty good final day so we'll see if he can take that into the Masters.

The win moved Tiger past Phil on the money leaders.

1 Vijay Singh (10) $2,748,463
2 Tiger Woods (4) $2,467,058
3 Charles Howell III (9) $2,427,478
4 Phil Mickelson (8 ) $1,768,988

(Tournaments played in brackets)

The hockey player came out in Sergio for a split second. At least he didn't whack someone in the head with his club. He still finished up with the leaders and a nice pay day.

I hope that Phil and Tiger get paired up together at some point in The Masters Tournament with Mike Weir and Phil finishing on the final day.

Tiger Woods vs Phil Mickelson today as they are playing together. Mickelson is two shots up and just answered Tiger's birdie on 16 with a birdie of his own to remain two shots up. I never would have picked Mickelson to win this weekend considering how well Tiger has been playing.

So Tiger Woods continues to dominate in golf.

Phil Mickelson comes close in the Fed Ex points standings.
Tiger Woods 1 123,033
Steve Stricker 2 110,455
Phil Mickelson 3 109,357

Mickelson did have a nice win a few weeks back but couldn't continue that in the following weeks. I think the only person that can beat Tiger is Tiger.
