No player ever led by more than one hole.
Woods won a $200,000 side bet on the first hole when Mickelson failed to make birdie. But to be able to have just to have just a little bit of smack talk for the coming years means a lot for me because I really don't have much on him.
"I feel like the first hole is a great hole for me", Mickelson said, per ESPN.
"Just so you know, I will never let you live that down", Mickelson told Woods afterwards. Woods's last major was in 2008; Mickelson's was in 2013.
Mickelson shot a contrived 93-yard par 3 on 22nd hole that included a tee box set on the practice green so lights could be set up for the players, CBS Sports reports. Tiger drilled a 21-foot chip before Mickelson barely missed a 10-foot putt.

Russian candidate to lead Interpol opposed by USA lawmakers
The Interpol presidency is more of an oversight position, compared with the hands-on leadership role of the secretary-general. The agency faced criticism two years ago when Interpol's member-states approved Meng as president for a four-year term.
Australia vs India: Large crowds expected for upcoming T20 series
While the duo has strayed away from such onslaughts, there was the odd innings where they struggled to contain the run-flow. There's one or two guys in each team around the world that we as a team discuss before playing against them.
After the two most popular golfers of their era hit their opening tee shots at Shadow Creek, they set off for what proved to be an underwhelming round in which both failed to deliver the highlight reel-type shots that have defined their careers. Facing an 8-footer to win, Woods left it low and short.
They returned to the 18th hole. Facing a buried lie, he managed to blast his ball over the creek and onto the green near his first putt on the 18th hole.
So they settled it in true gambling fashion by making a makeshift 20th hole, played from the practice putting green behind the clubhouse to a newly cut hole on the 18th green. Mickelson put his shot on the green, but was unable to convert - setting up the show of sportsmanship to head back to the tee box again in near darkness.
"You couldn't have made this event any better than it was", Woods said.
However, Woods chipped in for an unlikely birdie and Mickelson could not match it from 12 feet, meaning the match was all square heading to the 18th.
