They say hindsight is 20-20, and looking back, Tiger Woods admits he probably was not ready to return to golf, playing in the US Open after a nine week layoff following his father`s death. After failing to make the cut for the first time in his major tournament career, Woods says he went back to work on his game.
Meanwhile, golfer Phil Mickelson spoke out for the first time since his collapse at 18 at the US Open. Mickelson chose a driver over the 4 wood on the 18th tee and knocked the ball so far to the left it landed near the hospitality tents and matted in the rough. Then, he went for the green, rather than a safe shot. The ball hit a branch and traveled only 25 yards. His third shot got buried in the bunker, and Mickelson was on his way to that double bogey. This week he returns to the tour for the first time since the meltdown three weeks ago.
