Phil Mickelson, over the weekend:
There are going to be some drastic changes for me because I happen to be in that zone that has been targeted both federally and by the state and, you know, it doesn’t work for me right now. So I’m going to have to make some changes.
“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%. So I’ve got to make some decisions on what I’m going to do.”
Phil Mickelson, Monday:
“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.”
Tiger Woods, Tuesday:
“I moved out of here back in ’96 for that reason. I enjoy Florida, but I also understand what I think he was trying to say. I think he’ll probably explain it in a little more detail.”
We can all agree Mickelson should have never apologized in the first place, right? Ok? Good.
