Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson to be paired at Players Championship

Wells Fargo Championship- Round Three

- When news surfaced that the PGA Tour was sending Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson out in the same group for Rounds 1 and 2 at The Players, Rickie Fowler figured the best vantage point to watch the show was from home.

In posting his second win of the season, the Australian was only two fairways better than Woods and a dismal 6/14 on Sunday.

Tiger Woods just finished another golf tournament. "We are normally paired up on the weekend if we are both playing well, and even that's a rarity".

"I know they tried that first experiment in 2008 [at the U.S. Open], [when world numbers] one, two and three were out together, and that was a blast for both of us". We don't really do this very often, unfortunately. "I'm doing better as time has gone on", Mickelson said. The chances I did have I missed them all. We don't get it very often.

The Department of Homeland Security reported nearly 51,000 people were arrested or turned away at the southwest border in April. Sessions is expected to shine a spotlight on border control and the White Houses' plan to crack down on illegal immigration.

Fowler, who'll actually have a front-row seat on Thursday and Friday as the third member of the group, wasn't discouraging fans from trying to get a glimpse at TPC Sawgrass, he was just being realistic considering the massive crowds the threesome is sure to draw.

The Masters runner-up said: "Phil and I have played a lot of rounds together, and Tiger and I have played a little bit at home, we've played a few practice rounds together out here".

Woods failed to make a birdie in a round for just the 11th time as a pro and the first time since the final round of the tournament at Doral in 2014.

According to Steve DiMeglio of USA Today, they have played in the same group 32 times with almost identical scoring averages.

In his eyes, Apple is the ideal type of stock for Berkshire Hathaway because of the way the company operates. It actually led Berkshire to a net loss in the quarter, even though operating profit climbed.

"The better than most" quote is attributed to NBC analyst Gary Koch, who described the long putt on the island green as it tracked toward the hole and dove into the cup.

The ensuing birdie restored Day's two-shot lead and he parred the last to shoot 68 and finish at 12-under 272, two strokes ahead of Americans Aaron Wise (68) and Nick Watney (69) at Quail Hollow in Charlotte. He won the tournament again in 2013, which happens to account for his PGA Tour exemption status this year.

The other featured group is made up of the past three FedExCup champions - reigning champ Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. "But I think our relationship has certainly gotten a lot closer with me being a vice captain the last couple teams and sitting there and having very lengthy conversations with him about things, not just the pairings but just about things in general". I think it's nearly impossible with the quality of the field and how good these young players are, and there are more of them coming along. Woods has not played there since 2015.

"When you go to a big Championship, be it a major or The Players, you've got 20 to 25 guys that are really capable of winning and you know that nine or ten are going to play good that week".

A common misconception among Americans is that Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico's independence. That makes it ideal for both Cinco de Mayo and baseball season.
