LAS VEGAS – Nineteen holes failed to determine the match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on Friday at Shadow Creek.
So they settled in real playstyle: the 20th hole, played from the training the grass behind the clubhouse into a cut-out hole on the 18th green.
And they had to play it three times before Mickelson finally won and held a 4-foot to win the winner All Match, 1-up.
Mickelson, 48, has spoken on Friday’s meeting for months and suggests that it would help him get a little bit of satisfaction if he could win a Hall of Fame career but still be in the shadow of Woods, who has 1
4 majors and 80 PGA Tour titles.
He called the victory “very special.”
“I know great picture, your career is the biggest all the time,” Mickelson, who has 43 career prizes and five majors, said about Woods. “I’ve seen you do things that are just remarkable. But just know I’ll never let you live this downstairs. I’ll pick it up every time I see you.”
Mickelson then referred to a champion’s belt that Friday’s winner received, “said Woods,” I will wear this belt buckle every time I see you. “
“It’s not the masters, it’s not the US Open, I know, but it’s something,” he said. “It’s nice to have a little on you.”
Woods humbly sat down and took the good-looking dump he knew would come if he did not happen.
“I had plenty of opportunities to do putter today, and I did not put any pressure to put some pressure on Phil. I had the opportunity to win the match,” said Woods, referring to the first playoff hole on par-5-18, “and I hit a bad putt and then in extra holes – how do not you turn green with a lob wedge? Twice?
“So there was an opportunity wasted and Phil capitalized on it.”  Phil Mickelson won $ 600,000 in side-time with Tiger Woods and will donate the money to charity. Woods won a $ 200,000 bet that he will give charity. How did it play:
Hole 1: Mickelson loses his $ 200,000 bet that he should birdie first hole (make pair).
COUNT: TIGER UP $ 200K
Hole 5: Mickelson wins 1 $ 00,000 on the next challenge on par 3.
COUNT: TIGER UP $ 100K  Hole 7: Woods bet Mickelson $ 200,000 to play holes in from their second shot, but Mickelson deflects the challenge.
Hole 8: Mickelson wins 200,000 crowns on the nearest cup of par 3.
COUNT: PHIL UP $ 100K
Hole 9: Mickelson does $ 100,000 challenge for either eagle couple 4-ninth. After two nice tapes, Mickelson makes it 1 million dollars. Both make pairs; no payment.
Hole 11: Challenge of $ 200,000 for an eagle. No payout, because Woods makes birdie, Mickelson couple.
Hole 13: Mickelson wins 300,000 crowns on the nearest thief on par 3.
COUNT: PHIL UP $ 400,000.  Hole 14: Challenge of $ 100,000 for longest run, but both players lack the fairway, so what’s drawn.
