It was one of the more surprising things fans could have witnessed at The Masters. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson voluntarily played together in a Tuesday practice round at Augusta National. Woods and Mickelson have notoriously had a cold relationship at points during the past two decades, but last month in Georgia, two of the greatest American golfers of all time seemed to have put aside any bad blood.

Speaking at a recent Thuzio event, Joe LaCava, Woods' caddie, gave more perspective to the round.

"About noon on Monday, I was waiting for Tiger to get there and I saw Phil in the parking lot because the past champions have a different parking lot," LaCava says. "So I saw Phil and he mentioned to me that he didn't have anyone the next two days and if Tiger's looking, he's interested. So I pass it along to Tiger because I guess they got tighter at the Presidents Cup this past year, so they're not like, they [couldn't] stand each other at one time, but now, they're OK. And they got to know each other and they're OK right now."

LaCava went on to say that on the back nine of the round, Woods and Mickelson played together in a competition against Fred Couples (one of LaCava's former employers) and Thomas Pieters. Woods and Mickelson won.

Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune hosted the Thuzio conversation, which took place in Chicago the week after this year's Masters.
