Phil admires shot, talks trash on Tiger all at once

Leave it to Phil Mickelson to admire his own shot and talk trash all at once.

As you'll see and hear in the video below from the par-3 second on Saturday, Mickelson flushes an 8-iron from 169 yards, and while the ball is in the air, it sounds like someone says, "Better be better than Tiger's."

Phil immediately replies, "Oh, it is," and the ball drops down less than 8 feet from the hole.

Mickelson would go on to make his birdie.

The $9 million match is scheduled for Nov. 23.
