    By now most are familiar with the allegations involving championship golfer Phil Mickelson. Supposedly using information passed on to him by Las Vegas bettor William Walters, Mickelson allegedly completed stock-market trades that were informed by tips given to Walters by billionaire investor Carl Icahn. Mickelson has denied any wrongdoing in the confused legal sense of "insider trading," but assuming he's committed capital based on privileged information provided by Icahn, readers should cheer his actions. To be blunt, to the extent that Mickelson traded on information that originated with Icahn, he's a hero for having so done so. That's the case...
  • Liberals think Mickelson doesn’t really deserve his money because he won “life’s golf lottery”

    In Liberal theology telling the truth is a sin; acknowledging that success comes from hard work and not “winning life’s lottery” is a bigger sin. But being wealthy White and committing these sins makes them still bigger and clearly unforgivable. When professional golfer Phil Mickelson complained about his taxes being too high he committed the Liberal sin of telling the truth. Their selectively applied “speaking truth to power” slogan aside, Liberals become furious at people who tell the emperor he is naked. When Mickelson said he was tired of paying an aggregate tax of 63% after all of the bites...

    Here are a few highlights from Tiger Woods' Tuesday morning news conference in advance of this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. --Tiger agrees with Phil? Well, sort of. Phil Mickelson made news this week when he said he might leave California because of the state's income tax laws. "Well, I moved out of here back in '96 for that reason," Woods explained. "I enjoy Florida, but also I understand what he was, I think, trying to say. I think he'll probably explain it better and in a little more detail." Mickelson's pre-tournament interview is scheduled for Wednesday.

    Just a day after Phil Mickelson said he needed to make "drastic changes" in his life because his tax rate was going through the roof, he is trying to walk back his comments. He released a statement through his spokesman T.R. Reinman in which Mickelson apologizes to anyone who may have been offended: "Finances and taxes are a personal matter and I should not have made my opinions on them public. I apologize to those I have upset or insulted and assure you I intend to not let it happen again." This is absurd. There is no need for a...

    Mickelson expects to make 'drastic' changes LA QUINTA — San Diego professional golfer Phil Mickelson said after the final round of the PGA Tour’s Humana Challenge on Sunday that he will have to make “drastic changes” in his life because of the federal and state taxes he is paying, and he confirmed that his decision to not buy an interest in the Padres was directly related to his financial situation. "I'll probably talk more in depth next week (at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines). I'm not going to jump the gun,” Mickelson said. “There are going to be...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Things didn't look so good for Phil Mickelson earlier this week when he was forced to withdraw mid-round of Wednesday's pro-am play at the Quail Hollow Championship. Preparing for his first tournament appearance since winning a third Masters Green Jacket three weeks ago, golf's favorite player -- no longer is it worth debating -- was on the sixth hole when he became ill.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. — Phil Mickelson loves everything about Augusta National, and you can see it in his results. No matter what's happening in his life or his game, he finishes in the top 10, usually top five. From his victories in '04 and '06, to his record-tying 30 on the front nine on Sunday last year, to his three straight third-place finishes from 2001 to '03, Phil thrills at Augusta like no place else. He's at it again. Mickelson hit 10 of 14 fairways, blistering an assortment of eye-popping drives — one nearly reached the crosswalk on the ninth fairway...

With surgery on the horizion, we probably won't see much of Phil for a while after next week. All...

    What really defined this year's Masters golf tournament, which ended Sunday, was its emotional extremes. Not in a long time has one of golf's majors (or any sporting event, for that matter) taken fans on such an emotional rollercoaster, from extreme sadness to extreme joy, in such a short period of time. With the hubbub of last year's controversy about Augusta National Golf Club's men-only membership policy all but a distant memory, this year had but one focus: golf. And after yesterday, few fans were left disappointed. But before Sunday's joy, the sadness: The tournament opened Thursday with news of...
