New Delhi [India], September 3 (ANI): Long time rivals Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods have caught all golf fans off guard as the former chose to send out a late-night tweet for the latter just to appreciate his greatness.
"Dear Tiger, Thank you for all that you've done for this great game of golf. No one has benefited more than me and I just wanted you to know I appreciate you and all you've done. That's all. Thank you," Mickelson tweeted.

As soon as this tweet was put on the public forum, fans started questioning as to why the tweet has been made and what can be the possible reason for Mickelson appreciating his long time rival?
Seeing constant queries about the intentions behind his tweet, Mickelson finally cleared the air and said: "Random Appreciation".

The tales of competitiveness between Woods and Mickelson have one heard by everyone familiar with the golf world.
The duo has admitted in the past that they even went through phases where they did not talk to each other just because of the competitiveness between them in the sport of golf. (ANI)
