PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Phil Mickelson had the best 2010 U.S. Open score by two strokes and the best of Friday afternoon by three. After that, he could have sent several interesting texts to Tiger Woods.

“T Dub: My take on the afternoon greens – smooth as 66.”

“TW: Bumpy poa?”

“I thought this was supposed to be your Grand Slam year?”

“I’ve got Dave Stockton’s phone number if you want it.”
