This Tiger Woods - Phil Mickelson stat is potentially very freaky this week!

We'll just leave this here, and walk away slowly...

Phil Mickelson ended his five-year victory drought at the WGC-Mexico Championship two weeks ago. It was 1,687 days to precise. 

Should Tiger Woods do the unthinkable and also end his five-year victory drought with a ninth title at Bay Hill this Sunday, it will incredibly also be a total of 1,687 days.





Woods came ever so close to ending his winless streak at the Valspar Championship last week, finishing one stroke shy of eventual champion Paul Casey, who ended his 10-year victory drought on the PGA Tour. 

The 14-time major champion has been installed as a red-hot 6/1 favourite to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill this week, and his odds have also been slashed to 10/1 to win a fifth Masters and 15th major at Augusta National next month. 

Woods has now moved up to World No.150 following his solo 12th at the Honda Classic and tie for second at the Valspar Championship.

Will Woods prevail at Bay Hill this Sunday? Will he contend for a fifth Green Jacket in three weeks? Or will he start struggling again? Share your thoughts in our forum or join us on social media.
