PHIL MICKELSON: Well, I think I've become a more effective alternate-shot player because I'm able to hit a softer drive in the in the fairway. This course sets up for a lot of right-to-left shots which is great for me because I can cut it and get the ball to stop running and stay in the fairway.
So as an alternate-shot player, I'll be a little bit more effective. But I feel like I'll still be able to push on the accelerator in the best ball competition and try to make birdies, try to attack. Because there are times where in the notes that I've been taking, there are pins that you can attack and make birdies, but you need to have a partner that's going to ensure the par for some of these pins to go at, otherwise you have to play a little bit more conservatively. A great example would be the fifth hole. That is a tough hole. If you throw it to the pin to the right side, you can get at it but if you miss it, look what happened to T.C. Chen in '85. You have a double chip, he makes 8. You really want to have a partner who is left of the pin putting up the hill 40 feet and has a great 2-putt if you are going to try to attack that pain because if you short-side it you'll make bogey. I will play alternate-shot certainly differently than best ball.
JULIUS MASON: Phil Mickelson, thanks, folks.
