NORTON, Mass. — Phil Mickelson keeps saying how much he loves playing with Tiger Woods. He shot 63 at the Deutsche Bank Championship to prove it.
In a feature grouping of the top three players in the world ranking, Mickelson turned in the star performance Friday morning with a 28 that allowed him to consider — but only briefly — another shot at 59.
By the end of the day, when he played a risky shot from deep in the trees on his final hole to salvage bogey, he was happy to have a share of the lead. Mickelson was tied with Brian Davis, who made a 25-foot birdie putt on the last hole to join him at 8-under 63.
“What Phil did today was pretty impressive,” Woods said after a 68 that only seemed worse considering the company he kept.
Masters champion Adam Scott, rounding out the 1-2-3 pairing, struggled to a 73 and joked later that he rolled out of the wrong side of the bed. “I wish could have gotten in their jet stream,” Scott said.
Mickelson did everything right.
He started his round on...

For some reason Tiger Woods was on the sidelines for the Patriots final pre-season game against the Giants. I’m not sure what kind of benefit having perhaps the best golfer on the sideline has for a football team, but it did make for this cute little moment brought to us by Cork Gaines.
