AUGUSTA, Ga. – There’s one practice-round group that figures to draw a lot of attention Tuesday at Augusta National: Tiger Woods is playing with longtime rival Phil Mickelson.
Fred Couples and Thomas Pieters will round out the foursome.
“I think Thomas and I will just watch,” Couples said.
He didn’t specify what time they would play, nor did he say how the teams would be split.
In any event, it’s a rarity for Woods and Mickelson to play a practice round together.
It also provides some context to their interaction Monday afternoon, when Woods saw Mickelson in the parking lot.
As Woods’ cart drove past, Mickelson said, “We have some things to talk about.”
Woods’ cart slowed down. “Yes, we do,” he replied with a smile.
