Mickelson looks towards no 1 spot

Phil Mickelson has spent 244 weeks of his golfing career ranked no 2 after Tiger, but there is a possibility that after this week’s Players Championship at Sawgrass this week he could knock Tiger off the top spot and become the Worlds No 1 golfer.

To achieve this though Mickelson would have to win the golf tournament and Tiger would have to come outside the top five.

Despite Woods failing to make the cut last week at the Quail Hollow Championship and then a disastrous practice round of golf at Sawgrass on Tuesday, Mickelson still errs on the side of caution.

I have seen him hit shots that I don't know if anybody else in the world could ever possibly hit," he said, adding that Woods' 15-shot win at the 2000 US Open was the greatest performance he has ever seen.
"He is an incredible player and talent and he has one of the most impressive records, if not the most impressive, in the history of the game.

"I won't ever underestimate him. Regardless of what he did last week, knowing the competitor he is I expect him to come back and be the Tiger that we are used to seeing on the golf course."
