Woods, 42, has won 14 major titles, four shy of the record set by Jack Nicklaus, and 79 career PGA crowns, three shy of Sam Snead's all-time mark.
Tiger Woods is relishing the chance to play with long-time rival come friend Phil Mickelson this week, reports the Express. However, he'll be a major story line for fans Thursday and Friday, not just because he's, well, Tiger, but for the riveting group in which he's been placed.

In 2001, when Woods famously made his famous long putt at the par-3 17th during the third round that elicited the Gary Koch NBC TV call of "better than most, " he was paired with Mickelson. I would never say Tiger isn't going to do anything, he's proven people wrong his whole career, but I think it's a lot more hard than it has been in the past. May try and putt out as much as I can before Tiger does just so that I'm not hitting while the circus is moving on. "I mean, 9 under around this place is pretty good".
The two adversaries have seen their relationship mellow over the years to the point that they played a practice round together last month at the Masters. They represent, in reverse order, the past three FedExCup champions and will tee off together in another trio that could safely be described as "better than most".
