Woods took the golfing world by storm after winning the 1997 Masters and proceeded to win 14 majors over the next 11 years.
"We don't get to do it very often", Woods said.
The long-time rivals, who have been paired together 32 times over 21 PGA stroke-play events, are seldom paired together, in part to spread more popular players across different tee times and areas of the course during tournaments.
"It sucked to have to play against him". Mickelson, 47, won his 43rd PGA Tour title earlier this year at the WGC-Mexico Championship, his first win in more than four years.
"I don't know how it's going to play out, but I just know that we seem to be bringing out the best in each other", said Mickelson.
The win comes after Day's victory at January's Farmers Insurance Open, his first title since the 2016 Players Championship.
One year they were in the locker room at the Byron Nelson Classic when Mickelson challenged Woods to anything at their disposal.

The skit features Donald Glover , who hosted Saturday's show, along with SNL cast members to parody James' teammates. There's no release date yet for the new album, but we can probably expect it sometime before the end of the year.
Woods cracked up. "Whatever the Masters champion is wearing I will wear", he said. Woods is on a comeback after spinal fusion surgery to ease nagging back pain that cost him most of the past two PGA campaigns.
Mickelson had earlier offered effusive praise of just how powerful Woods was in his prime. "I'm definitely not against that", Woods said.
The Australian held off the challenge of Americans Aaron Wise and Nick Watney as he fired a two-under final round of 69 to finish on 12-under for a two-stroke victory. It's a big deal when the two best players of their generation are in the same group at any tournament, much less The Players Championship. That's how it always is now with Woods, who appears to care more and more about answering questions earnestly, knowing the gravity his words carry across the sporting world. You have to hit the golf ball well. That theme took on more significance when the two - twice - paired horribly at the 2004 Ryder Cup. I think it's a lot more hard than it has been in the past, we just need to see Tiger show us that he can win on a regular tour stage first.
"I don't think anybody today who wasn't there that witnessed it, and I don't think anybody before, will ever see that level of play again", Mickelson said of Woods' dominance. All three in their pairing are former Players winners.
"Phil and I have a great banter".
"I hit the ball halfway decent today.so I wasn't disappointed with that", Woods told reporters.
Though both players are in their 40s, they're enjoying solid seasons and have a number of fans and fellow pros excited to see them prowl the fairways of TPC Sawgrass together this week.
