Masters: Phil Mickelson on 'greatest thrill a golfer can experience'
Phil Mickelson talks Tiger Woods, Augusta National and the greatest thrill a golfer can have.
This much you already know: Nobody loves Augusta like Phil Mickelson loves Augusta.
Mickelson reiterated that today:
"There's not one thing that's going to make me more excited for the upcoming Masters.
"To be in the thick of it, to feel that excitement. To grace Amen Corner knowing you need birdies and trying to win a green jacket, that is the greatest thrill a golfer can possibly experience."
"We're certainly cooler."
On Tiger Woods being "back":
"It does have the feel of what we expect from Tiger."
Finally on what the course looks like this year:
"The grass is in incredible shape. Every year we come out and talk about how pristine Augusta is. The areas that have historically had problems are not having problems. They're perfect."
No, you're perfect, Phil. Perfect for this tournament, perfect for this week, perfect for this sport.
Now go figure out what clubs you're going to put in your bag.
