ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I've never really been super-talented; people would disagree with that, but I've always had to work twice as hard as everybody growing up. I was never as good as a junior, at least when I was 12, 13, 14, 15. Right around 14, 15, I started working really hard and that's kind of what changed my game. So for whatever reason, that dedication has allowed me to be more consistent. I'm just a little different cat. That's okay. I like that and appreciate that about myself and that I'm able to stay true to myself. There's a lot of people that change out here sometimes, and that's something that I appreciate is that I've got a lot of great people around me that allow me to be consistent with who I am, and just keep working hard. That's just who I am. But what I figured out, I'm not going to tell you, because it's my stuff, and I worked hard to get it. But it's definitely something that helped me be more consistent.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player recorded his first bogey-free round since 2015 in the third round of the Northern Trust. Can you name him?

IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME? Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson: It’s the mano-a-mano golf match that fans would have drooled over 15 years ago — but will anyone care in 2018? That will be the big question for AT&T Inc., which announced it will air a pay-per-view match over Thanksgiving weekend between the two greatest golfers of their era. AT&T said it will distribute live pay-per-view coverage on a number of its platforms, including DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and sports streaming site B/R Live. The company said the match will also be available on other on-demand platforms, and a rebroadcast will air on the TNT network. The pay-per-view price was not announced. READ MORE>>>

CONSPIRACY THEORY? So it is just a coincidence that Phil Mickelson decided last week was the time to join Twitter? Or can we safely conclude it is part of the strategy to pimp the upcoming pay-per-view winner take all match with Tiger Woods? You be the judge.
