Phil Mickelson Says Tiger Needs to Putt Well to Win


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – NBC-TV analyst Johnny Miller walked three holes with Phil Mickelson on Tuesday.
Miller confirmed suspicions about how Tour players are assessing the Tiger Woods they're seeing since Woods returned from knee surgery.
'Phil said that `Now Tiger has to putt well to win by one, and we like it that way,'' Miller said in a teleconference Wednesday.
With Woods struggling with his driver, Miller says Mickelson's not the only Tour pro thinking that way.
'That's the feeling on Tour now, `Tiger is still Tiger, but he has to putt well to beat us, and he might beat us by just a shot. The game's on now.''
