Mickelson impressed by Tiger's Ryder Cup commitment


Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods have never been considered good friends, but they are on the same page heading into the Ryder Cup.

United States captain Davis Love III will officially announce three of his four picks on Monday.

But, according to Mickelson, everyone on the team already knows who they will be.

"We know who is going to be playing with who, when they're going to be playing, what matches," Mickelson said, via GolfChannel.com.

Mickelson has been impressed with vice-captain Woods.

The two long-time rivals have even had meaningful conversations about the Ryder Cup .

"I am so happy to see how well he [Woods] has thought this through," Mickelson said.

"I can't believe our conversations just this week, how detailed he is and the pairings, the possibilities, the players. Not just what matches they're going to play, but where on the list.

"He has got us really a good, solid game plan that is easy to buy into and get behind. I'm very impressed."

As for the delay in making picks, Mickelson said: "[It's] just in case somebody gets really hot.

"We still have the option to add somebody that we didn't expect to play at that level and we want to ride the hot hand."
