We just enjoy ourselves, trying to have a good time out there. headtopics.com

"But mentally she's very good for me. She knows me better than anybody."Westwood is back at Torrey Pines for the first time since falling one stroke short of joining the 2008 Tiger Woods-Rocco Mediate playoff, famously won by Woods, who played on virtually one leg due to a knee injury and tibia stress fractures.

Like Mickelson, Westwood does not bring his best game to the course every time, but he is okay with that."I think I was a lot more consistent when I was younger," said the former world number one who has won more than 40 times worldwide.Advertisement

"I think it's just a case of getting older and not being able to peak as often. I know when my game's there, it's still world class, and I'm still going to have a chance in the big tournaments against the best fields."It just doesn't happen as regularly. I'm a little bit sort of blase about it and turn up. If my game's there, it's there, and I might have a chance." headtopics.com
