The 48-year-old Mickelson, who won the WGC-Mexico in the spring, played on his first U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1995 and has made every team since, including two years ago at Hazeltine, where the Americans won for just the third time in his 11 appearances. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there", Woodland said.
"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said. "But today I drove it beautifully, my wedges distance control is very spot on and I was making those five, six-footers that you need to make". If you do that well, and, obviously, in there you're going to make those putts.
"I wasn't enjoying my golf, strangely". The iron game, the distance control this week, has been phenomenal. He rolled in the putt for his fifth birdie in eight holes, which moved him into a tie for third. After a three-putt on 14 he was back to even on the day.

Kenyon also works with Open champion Francesco Molinari, who is five shots off the lead after a 67, with world number three Justin Rose another stroke back following a 69.
"His played beautifully", Woodland said. He drove the ball unbelievably and he gets that putter going quite often. It was nice to feed off that energy. "So it's good to have that energy out there as well".
Kisner also had the chance to shoot 62 after covering the back nine in 29 and picking up another birdie on the seventh, only to bogey the ninth, his final hole of the day.
