Tiger Woods reveals his “smart aleck” response to Phil Mickelson during their 2001 Masters duel

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson promised golf fans plenty of trash talk ahead of last year's "The Match" in Las Vegas. Woods was trying to win a fourth consecutive major championship that Sunday (what would become known as the "Tiger Slam") but first, he had to go through Mickelson in what was the first and only time they would be paired in the final group during the final round at a major. Woods bogeyed the first hole to fall into a tie with Mickelson and the two remained within one shot of each other until No. 11, where Woods birdied while Mickelson bogeyed.
