THIS IS PHIL MICKELSON AT THE MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT facing the media for the first time since being named in an insider trading investigation. Mickelson has agreed to repay $1 million to the SEC after receiving a stock tip from gambler Billy Walters, who has been charged.
It’s an awkward 35 seconds, and I’m sure Phil hopes this really is behind him, although, according to reports, the PGA Tour is reviewing the situation. Meanwhile, Lefty’s sponsors are backing their man for now. Not Phil’s finest hour, by a long shot.
