Winner: Vijay Singh
PHIL MICKELSON and Tiger Woods have been paired together many times on Tour, including on Sunday during the final round of the BMW Championship, but humorous moments between the longtime rivals have been few and far between. Still, both players couldn't help but laugh on the 1st tee at they were about to play the opening round of the '02 Tour Championship. As is the custom, the tee announcer ticked off the players' accomplishments that season for the gallery. As he was going through the list of Woods's five victories—the Masters and the U.S. Open among them—Mickelson (who had won twice) interrupted by saying, "All right, all right!" Mickelson and Woods, along with the crowd, broke into laughter. Mickelson shot an even-par 70 that day to edge Woods by a shot, but both players would finish far behind Singh, who used a long putter to win by two over Charles Howell.
