Phil Mickelson regrets airing opinion on taxes

Phil Mickelson says he should have kept his opinions on taxes to himself.

Mickelson had suggested "drastic changes" were in store for him because of changes in federal and state taxes that he says tap into more than 60 percent of his income. He said it was the reason behind his decision not to be part of the new ownership group of the San Diego Padres.

Mickelson says in a statement that finances and taxes are personal and he should not have publicized his complaints. He's apologizing to anyone insulted by his comments and says he won't let that happen again.

The San Diego native is to hold a news conference Wednesday at Torrey Pines.

7. I think he just forgot he wasn't just talking to his country club golf buddies.

Those rich a-holes talk like this all the time. He was just yammering after a game and forgot who his audiance was. Oh, and you gotta love the ridiculous claim that he pays "63%" in taxes. What a lying douchebag.


"If you add up all the federal and you look at the disability and the unemployment and the Social Security and the state, my tax rate's 62, 63 percent," Mickelson said. "So I've got to make some decisions on what I'm going to do."
