Tiger Woods, No. 1.

Phil Mickelson, No. 2.

Wouldn’t it be something if they went out in the final pairing of the PGA Championship on Sunday, dueling head-to-head with a major title on the line, still the guys to beat after all these years?

Mickelson would certainly relish the challenge.

"I’ve always been a competitive person," Lefty said Tuesday, coming in from a practice round at Oak Hill. "I’m as motivated as ever to compete and to play and get the best golf out of me, to hopefully play against Tiger when he’s playing his best. That would ultimately be the goal — I can play as well as I can at the same time he’s doing the same.

"I would love that opportunity."

Both players are on top of their games entering the final major of the year.

Woods is coming off a seven-stroke win at the Bridgestone, his PGA Tour-leading fifth victory of the year.

Less than three weeks ago, Mickelson won the British Open with a dazzling final round at Muirfield.

While Woods is mired in the longest major drought of his career — more than five years — he’s clearly bounced back from personal woes, a series of injuries, and major changes in his swing.
