Mickelson’s first swing was an incredible one, placing him in a strong position to take advantage of his promise. His subsequent putt missed the mark. You could see the beguilement all over as he told Mickelson, “That hurt the pocket.”
On the first hole, Woods had a possibility for his very own birdie on a putt yet didn’t nail it. He grabbed his ball, and the consideration swung to Mickelson gazing at a nine-foot putt, one that was trickier than it looked.
He walked off the miss with a lighter wallet, $200,000 “That hurts the pocket,” Woods remarked.
Mickelson, 48, has the opportunity to recover a lot of his lost wager in the event that he can out-play Woods, 42, on the way to the $9 million prize.
“The Match: Tiger versus Phil” is in progress — as of this composition — at Shadow Creek outside Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday.
