  5. Phil Mickelson:

    I flew it by him 25 yards, i have gotten a lot more speed in the offseason. That really bothered him. So the 14th hole is a dogleg right to left. I guess he really hammered one.

Had I known that he was going to make a big deal about it, I would have swung a fraction harder and put it past him.
