was Mickelson\'s first Players title. He spoke to reporters after his round about
the victory.

Phil Mickelson
Q. You said yesterday you had won a lot of tournaments with your short game, more
than with your ball-striking. Didn\'t you win it with both really this week?

PHIL MICKELSON: Yeah, what I\'d like to do is have four days of ball-striking like
today\'s final round and then it takes a lot of pressure off my short game. It was a
very mediocre day for me putting. I could have run it high if I would have made some
reasonable putts. I will gladly take the way the round went because it was a
stress-free type round.

Q. Have you ever had a win when you\'ve actually -- your swing has been a work in
progress through the tournament like this, when you\'ve been working on major

PHIL MICKELSON: Probably. I mean, I look back in the past when I won some of the
first couple tournaments of the year in La Costa at \'94 and \'98, and I remember I
was working on things then to start the year and so forth. But it does mean a lot to
have the results that I\'ve had immediately with the third, the third and the win
because it tells me that I\'m on the right path and things that I\'m doing are
correct. I\'m excited about the way my ball-striking seemed to get better as the week
went on. It seemed to get better from Dallas to Wachovia, it seemed to get better
from Wachovia to here, and so I believe that if I keep working at these things and
progressing, I should be ready to take on the ultimate tough challenge at Oakmont.
