Phil Mickelson ‘challenges’ Tiger Woods to golfing duel

( CNN) It’s the dream pairing golf fans yearn for, but Phil Mickelson has upped the ante and called out Tiger Woods for a separate high-stakes shootout.

The veteran duo will play together, alongside another pavilion player Rickie Fowler, in the first two rounds of the Players Championship at Sawgrass, Florida, this week, and 47 -year-old Mickelson was in playful mood as he threw out the challenge to his old rival.

The pair, who have 19 majors between them, dueled at the top of the game for much of their careers and are both enjoying a new flush — Woods, 42, after making a promising return from back fusion surgery, and Mickelson with a first victory in five years in Mexico earlier this season.
