Chris Reimer interviews Phil Mickelson on the eve of the 2010 Players Championship Sawgrass

CHRIS REIMER: If you could start with some opening comments about coming back to TPC Sawgrass.

PHIL MICKELSON: Well, I've really come to love and appreciate the challenge that this golf course provides, and a few years ago when the course was changed to Mini Verde on the greens, it made a big difference. I think the ball rolls and tracks so much better. And the less rough as opposed to having big, thick hay, having shots that are fliers, and you're able to get up-and-down around the greens or at least have a chance has made this golf course fun as well as challenging.
