Phil Mickelson is currently in the news for an FBI insider trading investigation, but this is hardly the first time Mickelson has been linked to shady businessmen. Two years ago, we wrote about Mickelson’s personal relationship with Bob Diamond, who was forced to resign from Barclay’s after the company was found guilty of manipulating worldwide interest rates. Mickelson consistently defended Diamond.
A year-and-a-half ago, Mickelson made embarrassing headlines when he very publicly pouted about California state taxes. (Last time I checked, California did not have border guards keeping residents from moving.)
It may turn out that Tiger Woods is only the second-biggest phoney in golf.
