Remember back in May at The Players when “Lefty” suggested a match against Tiger would be a good idea? “A high stakes, winner take all match. Now, I don’t know if he wants a piece of me,” he jokingly said.
And then Tiger entered the press room later and was asked about Phil’s joke. First, smoke shot from Tiger’s ears in frustration and then he replied, “Big picture.”
Woods was alluding to his 79 PGA Tour wins, 36 more than Mickelson.
Perhaps the “high stakes” match will happen.
These odds are now available, and Tiger’s the favorite. He always is — even when he’s a long-shot.
