"The only way to win tournaments is with the short game. Over half your shots out here are within 30 or 40 yards. Ballstriking is where I'm trying to improve, yes, but more to eliminate big numbers than make birdies." - Phil Mickelson

"There is nobody in the game that I have seen that is remotely close to the level of performance Tiger was in his prime. Mentally, short game, or ball striking, I don’t think anybody matches him in any of those areas. And Tiger put them all together in one to create a career that is mind-boggling in the game of golf. As great as the young players are, the level that I've seen out of Woods, especially when you go back to 2000 at the U.S. Open and his performance when he held all four major championships at once, I think we're decades away from anybody getting back to that level." - Phil Mickelson

"In my view, there's a million ways to swing a golf club, and you can swing it a million different ways and be effective. I think that you can putt a million different ways and be effective. But there's only one way to chip effectively. So regardless of how you swing the club, regardless of how you putt, there's only one way to chip, because the leading edge on a 60-degree wedge is coming into the ball first. And everything you do chipping is to get, keep the leading edge down. So there's three or four fundamentals on chipping that everybody has to do to chip well. No matter who you are. And it has nothing to do with your swing.'' - Phil Mickelson

"I think that Tiger Woods is going to have the last laugh. I think that his short game, historically, is one of the best of all time. I think his golf game is probably the best of all the time." - Phil Mickelson
