Although Mickelson said on Wednesday he would refrain from trash talking until after he and Woods presumably get wildcard picks and compete together as members of the US Ryder Cup team next month, he tweeted a couple jabs at Tiger on Wednesday and told the media it would be "the easiest $9 million" he's ever made.

Woods did not fire as many shots in his opponent's direction, but what he did say probably put him 1 up.

"That's all I've got to say."
