Mickelson was speaking ahead of this week's Ryder Cup where he teams up with Woods, fresh off his first victory in more than five years at the Tour Championship. To compound matters, Mickelson finished 24 strokes adrift of Woods and in last place on 13-over par.
But while there's still two months until their hotly-anticipated Thanksgiving match, Mickelson has begun early negotiations.
“I’m trying to negotiate a shot a side,” Mickelson said, chuckling. “It didn’t go over well, but I’m still working on it. I’ve got some negotiating to do, given how well he played last week.”
Mickelson also tweeted this:
I just played with Tiger today and it is the best I’ve ever seen him swing the club. It is so on plane and solid. I’ll be asking for a shot a side for our Thanksgiving match. I doubt I’ll get it though.— Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) September 25, 2018
