Phil Mickelson

Cromwell, Connecticut

Q. Phil, 3-under. Just get some comments on your opening day.
PHIL MICKELSON: You know, it was a good started. I didn't hurt myself any, but I made a few mistakes out there that I have to clean up tomorrow. I feel like the round should have been three or four lower. If I can do that tomorrow I'll be right in it for the weekend.

Q. The rain was coming down there for a little while. How difficult was that?
PHIL MICKELSON: It was wasn't really affecting the shots any because we were able to lift, clean, and place it. We were able to move it around in the fairway, which I thought was a really good call. As much mud as we got on te ball, the rules officials really did a good job. And they did a good job of putting the pins in slightly high location so that we didn't have too much collection of water.

I thought it was a really good day given the conditions.

Q. First time back since 2003. Feel good to be back?
PHIL MICKELSON: Yeah, I really like this golf course. I love the birdie opportunities. I love the chances to get aggressive. I love the greens. I putt them very well. They have very soft movement so you feel like you can make a lot of putts. I had a good day putting, and I think I have a really low one in me. Hopefully it'll be tomorrow.

Q. The drives at 10 and 14... (indiscernible.)
PHIL MICKELSON: So the drive on 10 was not a bad drive. I carried that tree; drove it down there; had a short iron in. It just plugged and we couldn't find it of.

The drive on 14 was atrocious and should've been out of bounds, and hit a tree and cam back and saved me probably at least one, maybe two shots.
