Rory McIlroy putts on the 10th green during a practice round of the 2019 U.S. Open golf tournament at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Mickelson can join the company with which golf fans are more familiar - Woods, Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen are the only players to win all four of the modern majors.

We take a look at how some of the leading contenders this week plan to conquer the unique challenge of Pebble Beach - a cliff-side course exposed to the elements and renowned for its narrow fairways and small greens.

"I know that his drive and his will to be successful is very, very high".

It's not unusual for organizers to rave about the condition of a golf course on the eve of a major championship. "I did not hit every fairway, but I always had the proper angle", Woods said of that "very special week". With an estimated 250,000 visitors expected during the tournament across more than 7,000 yards of surrounding golf course, the test should serve as a strong indicator for the technology's readiness to go to market. Obviously the views make it a little different.

Asked how a first major win since 2014 would feel, the Northern Irishman said: "Liberating, satisfying, I mean, there's a lot of different words you could use to describe what it would feel like. We do things on the golf course with alternative sets of tees". There's only a couple of tee shots that are somewhat blind that you need to just make sure that you're comfortable on lines.

"I love that about it".

Shikhar Dhawan doubtful for India’s next two games
However, Dhawan didn't take the field due to the injury and Ravindra Jadeja fielded in his place for the entire 50 overs.

Navin Singh, chief commercial officer of the USGA, said: "One of the USGA's greatest priorities is to ensure that each person who steps through the gates at one of our championships receives the best fan experience in golf". And I miss competing, I miss playing. I had a chance to win. Hale Irwin and Woods, who won his last U.S. Open in 2008, each have three. "It's a lovely place".

Buoyed by his stunning seven shot victory at the Canadian Open, the 30 year old said: 'I think you'd have to go back to that summer for the last time I played with the freedom I had on Sunday. "I don't think any of us have the same body we had 19 years ago". And I'm definitely guilty of that.

"I'm not thinking about it".

"Especially, major championships are played on the toughest courses, and you start to chase on those really tough courses, it s hard to do that".

Woods was 24 back then, but now the 43-year-old is looking to become the oldest player to win multiple majors in one season, with Mark O'Meara 41 when doing so in 41. "That was the reason for putting that extra wedge in".

Few courses can boast Pebble Beach's beguiling mixture of beauty and menace and that trio of par-fours sums up what promises to be another fascinating Major, bar set-up mistakes by the USGA or an unexpected curve-ball from Mother Nature.

"Where I grew up in Northern Spain, it's somewhat similar to California". So I feel comfortable. I'm comfortable reading those greens. It just happens when poa annua comes. "If they get firm and crusty it will be so hard to hold them".
