ALSO MAKING NEWS THIS WEEK IN 2005 THIS WEEK IN ... 2005 TIGER OUTDUELS PHIL AT DORAL T IGER Woods and Phil Mickelson have both been involved in their fair share of memorable duels over the years. But it was their clash at Doral in 2005 that saw Woods win the 2005 Ford Championship and regain his position as World No.1 for the first time in six months. The Gil Hanse-designed ‘Blue Monster’ played host to the encounter, which was a good old-fashioned trade of blows between two of the game’s very best. It took Woods 12 holes and a brilliant 260-metre approach shot to finally snatch the lead away from Mickelson. But ‘Lefty’ responded immediately with back-to-back birdies. Woods sunk a 30-foot birdie putt at the 17th to steal the lead once more, before Mickelson lipped out with a chip from a similar distance at the 18th that would’ve forced a play-off. "I'm a little ticked at myself for not getting it done," Mickelson said. "I knew I was playing well enough to win. I believe I should have won, I certainly could have won. And I just hope that I have another shot soon. "With all the feelings I have about losing today, this was probably the best thing that could have happened to me heading into the majors. I just knew I was going to win today and when I didn't, it was a real slap in the face, so I'm going to work my tail off to salvage a couple more shots.” Mickelson went on to finish 10th at the Masters the following month, while Woods played that shot at the par-3 16th, which helped him win his fourth green jacket after a play-off against Chris DiMarco.
