Kneepads on for Phil

"You brought up Phil and I'm glad to get because I saw a stat today because the PGA Tour just released their 2023 season. All their events are 44 events. They've gone up to $425 million next year, the price money, okay? Yeah. That is 20 million more than the live next year. The live has 14 events, 405 million. Do you think that every single professional golfer in the entire world that's on a major tour should have their knee pads out for Phil Mickelson sending them $10,000 bottles of wine, whatever the hell he wants it. Yeah, I mean, Mickelson and, I mean, the two, two controversial. Some people would call it a controversial last year, but really Nicholson and Norman, because I mean, the tour, the tour, that tour never happens without Norman, Norman's kind of vendetta with the PGA Tour, right? He tried to hook. He tried to do a similar thing years ago in the PJ tour came up with the wgc to squash it. And then Phil kind of talking about it. And I mean, you can say TV contract, you can say whatever, but purses go up every single year, they don't go up this much though. Like not even close. So I think without a doubt, the better guys, the best guys they know, they know why the purses are going up. They're not idiots. Every single person with a brain knows why purses have gone up on the PGA Tour, but the better guys should really go knee pad nation because they're going to get all these no cut events too, that are basically live events. There are many live events built into the PGA Tour.

"Months. Or at the very least, that's what it seemed like from outside. Yes, and ultimately he reemerged when Liv golf finally announced its schedule announced its field, he wasn't in it at first, everyone was sort of wondering is Phil really going to do it? Is he not? It seemed like he just wanted to sort of maybe be the story of the moment one more time. So three days later, they finally announced that he was there, then he showed up in London. And gave this first press conference where he said repeatedly, no one here condones human rights violations. I think he said that phrase four times. I don't condone human rights violations at all. I said earlier, I don't condone human rights violations. Nobody here condones human rights violations. I don't know how else I can say it. I don't condone human rights violations. Nobody here does. How much was he paid to be there? Kevin, how much has he paid in totality here to be there? Nobody knows for sure, but we asked him directly. Is it true that you are getting $200 million to play for a live golf? And he paused and said, I think that contract negotiations and details should be private. But it's obvious that they're not. And that was his answer. So it wasn't any kind of denial and it seemed to be sort of a confirmation of what he was getting. And as you alluded to, Phil has now talked about how gambling was a major drain on both his personal relationships, his family life, and also on his bank account. And so it seemed like money just was this like way too on the nose recurring thebe as you saw it in London. Yes, money was everywhere all around. I mean, Phil walked out to the OJ's for love of money. And it seemed almost like a trolling thing that when he did it, nobody knows kind of what motivates Phil in terms of to do certain things or to send certain messages to people, but that's kind of how he is. He's cryptic. He's sly, he's goofy. He's charming. That's kind of a totality of Phil Mickelson is always been something that's kind of in a fascinating character in American sports. But we also discovered that Phil was definitively not alone here, right? He goes from being this pariah exiled trashed by all of his colleagues on the PGA Tour more or less. And then who ends up joining him, who are some of the names that end up coming over crossing that aisle. Yeah, Dustin Johnson was probably one of the biggest names Charles schwartzel, who won the masters in 2011, Louise dazen, who won the open championship in 2010. Ian poulter, who's a writer cup stalwart, Lee Westwood, there's a lot of pretty good, although mostly past their prime players who were willing to jump with him. And then all of a sudden, once the tournament started, Bryson DeChambeau decided to throw his hat in, Patrick Reed announced that he was joining. And I don't think that it's over. I think there are more guys who are probably eyeing the backlash and saying, you know what? I think I can stomach this. I think I'm willing to do this. No, it did feel Kevin like watching it from afar that they all did a very golf thing. They took some grass through it in the air and saw which way the wind is blowing. And it felt like a lot of these guys who are a mix of legitimate stars and also rans. They decided that this was a controversy that they now having watched Phil go through the whole cycle that they now could stomach. Yeah, I think the guys who were in first really in some ways took the brunt of the criticism, even though they did it in London, there was certainly a bigger contingent facing Phil when he came to the U.S. open, but that initial volley was probably the hardest. And moving forward, I wouldn't be surprised if it gets less and less and less until it kind of becomes a non issue, and that's what sports watching is. Just the foot of hint in this. For those who are not familiar, how did the PGA Tour react to that list of guys? Who all said, I would like to cash in on this enterprise. The PGA Tour sent what can only be described as angry letter to the world and said that all of those players were suspended, they did not say whether it was a lifetime suspension, which had been rumored or a shorter suspension, but that they were not allowed in the future to participate in any sort of PGA Tour event or any PGA Tour champions event or, you know, take a sponsors exemption into anything and the commissioner mentioned money so many times he almost wonder if the letter would have backfired to some people would be like, well yeah, there's a lot of money involved here. So what are you gonna do for us, you know, loyalty is only gonna keep us here for so long..

"ESPN daily is presented by supercuts. The smarter, easier way to get a haircut. It's not just any haircut. It's super cuts. Kevin von waldenberg, you have been tracking the protagonist of the existential crisis that golf has been enveloped by over the last several days. You were with Phil Mickelson in London at the live golf tournament the first ever, which we're here to talk about, but we also just watched him give his first press conference. Here in America in months at the country club, the host of this week's U.S. open in Brookline, Massachusetts, and my first question to you is just, are you surprised that Phil Mickelson ditched his leather jacket? Well, Pablo in the vein of Phil Mickelson, the way he answered questions today, I'll say, I respect your question, just so much respect for it, but I think I'm going to not address that at the moment. I know that many of you have strong many people have strong opinions, emotions about my choice to go forward with Liv golf. And I understand, and I respect that. Well, I mean, it was such a thing because he shows up. He's also looking like a midlife crisis in London, right? Which is appropriate, I suppose, for what golf is also battling with, but he shows up in his Harris licked back and his leather jacket, and he is a scruffy beard. How would you describe what Phil was looking in sounding like? A couple days later here at the U.S. open presser. On Monday, a little more polished than we saw in London. You could tell in London he was going to take a full ten second pause at times to decide how he was going to answer questions. I think you can see a lot of evidence of a lot of therapy since he's been away. And he's has pretty much come out and said that not only has he been in therapy to deal with some of his gambling addictions, but also to just sort of be a better, more focused, more present person. Well, I wanted to say that it's nice to be back, nice to see you guys. It's been four months. It's been, it's given me an opportunity to spend time with loved ones and continue some of the work therapy wise on some of the deficiencies that I have, certainly, and as well as focus on best paths forward. I'm sure we're big fans of therapy on this pod here and of course. So I don't think anything is that as a knock on film, but I think that it's very clear that he is done being the sort of smart alecky freewheeling character that he once was. It is hard to shake the fact that a lot of this evolution has been spurred by the fact that he is the face of the Liv golf tournament, right? Which is backed by the government of Saudi Arabia. Why is this tour such a huge deal that is obscuring everything? How would you begin to answer that at this point? Let's just start with the fact that the public investment fund of Saudi Arabia has around $600 billion in it. And that is just money that Saudi Arabia has earmarked for the purposes of transforming its country in their words sort of away from a dependency on oil and more towards being a more progressive society. They made investments in Formula One in WWE in horse racing. There you now have a controlling interest in Newcastle United and the Premier League. Golf is the latest step in that supposed evolution. And what that is essentially being described by human rights groups is sports washing. Which is when you are essentially laundering your reputation geopolitically by using sports by making yes, people more comfortable with investing in your country, business wise, and so what Liv golf is basically saying, it's not a regular sports league that would ever have to turn a profit or balance its books. It is just a sports league that is willing to spend $2 billion over the next four years to launder Saudi Arabia's reputation. How big a threat do you think the live tour is to the sport of golf to the PGA Tour in specific? I try to sort of explain it like this to people who aren't golf nerds like myself. Imagine if another league started up another basketball league, say, in China or in Europe or somewhere, and they could take away the 50 best players in the NBA. So no Steph Curry, no LeBron James, no Joel embiid, no even, you know, James Hart. What would that look like in terms of you as an NBA fan? You'd be pretty bored by some of the games you wouldn't just immediately adopt the sort of new players you'd feel kind of lost. You didn't know any of the storylines. You didn't know any of the drama. You were frustrated. That's what's potentially occurring with golf is yes, those players, it seems like who went to go live will probably still be able to play in the majors. The masters, the U.S. open, the PGA Championship, the open championship. Right, not regulated by the PGA Tour proper. Correct. The PJ tour does not own or control any of those majors. But Phil is going to play Liv golf. He's said he's going to play in all the tournaments this year. He's going to play in all the tournaments next year. And whether he's able to ever play on tour again, I think we'll just have to be kind of determined going forward by the courts. And so that's why golf has a kind of like a boxing vibe to it at the moment where there are a lot of different competing interests and some people declaring themselves jamming that some people getting mega rich and all of that is going to shake out in a long, protracted,.

basketball which starts its 5th season We're talking about ice cube everybody Hey Mister cube Mister ice Mister cube There he is That is coming up straight ahead on the business of sports but first we got some topics to talk about and they are some big ones And probably dominating right now PGA Tour has suspended players participating in the Saudi Mac league the golf investment which there are 17 players right now and some of those players include Phil Mickelson Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia and scar the PGA means business Yeah they are taking a hard line on anyone who's taking part in this Saudi Arabia backed golf league The PJ saying they will be suspended from PGA tournament play They have really thrown down the gauntlet and want to create this perception that this is a breakaway league and it will not be tolerated and that these players are making this choice for financial based reasons and they can not therefore be part of the PGA Tour and participate in the membership benefits and the opportunities and the platform And there is truth to the fact that there is a lot of money at play here that there are financial based reasons for players taking part in this new league The reports show that Phil Mickelson is getting paid I think $200 million Dustin Johnson a 150 million that is more than double the total prize money he's earned so far on tour Apparently Tiger Woods turned down 1 billion to take part Well I mean look there's a lot of money involved I mean Scarlett for sure but I mean for me God it does sound like a lot of fun Have you heard about this format I mean first of all yes a lot of money I mean total price per of 25 million per event But I mean the first event is going to be I mean there are 12 teams Each team has a captain they select the draft who they're going to have on their teams It's three days not four it's a 48 man field with a shotgun start I mean it's still a traditional sort of stroke play format but it does sound like a lot of fun It brings in a little bit of a match play shotgun start all that good stuff And by the way two men who are not on the list as of yet Bryson edition Beau and Patrick Reed The thing about it is they're offering all this money to the players to come to the IV right now Dustin Johnson I think was offered a $100 million plus all the prize money He wins And what Johnson said was look I can't play forever So in basically he wants to set his life up later on down the road With a $100 million start it's for some of these players it's hard to turn down so like you said scar this is a hard line that the PGA is taking What's also interesting here is it's notable that the USGA is not following this script The USGA oversees the U.S. open which will happen soon And it did say that those who are qualified to play in the U.S. open will not be prevented from teeing it up because of their participation in the Liv event So that's an interesting sidebar story in all of this but one of the big issues that people have with this golf league is just that Saudi Arabia is trying to sports wash its global image right Because under The Crown prince we'll haven't been Salma and it's trying to diversify its economy beyond oil and detract move away from it's just small human rights record Well look I mean from my perspective it sounds like the era of free agency is beginning in professional golf Well prices aren't falling at this Walmart Oh good transition See Walmart air Rob Walton looks like he's the man that is going to buy the NFL Broncos they have made the announcement that yeah this is going to happen So they bought the team in its according to ESPN and others This deal is worth $4.65 billion Yeah the highest price tag for any U.S. team since Jose bought the Brooklyn Nets for $3.3 billion Of course we had Chelsea sold Todd bully and Friends for 5.3 billion not so long ago but Sam Walton along with his daughter and her husband as well as melody hobson who is the co CEO of aerial investments will be taking ownership provided that the NFL finance committee and other team owners approve the deal Of the Broncos which has been something we've been waiting for for a couple of months now It's notable here that melody hobson would be the first I don't know if the first black person because up until now no black person has ever held a majority stake in any NFL team I don't know if her investment changes that because I don't know how much of a share she has So these are all big question marks But yeah big price tag and as you mentioned bar it's very interesting that a company known for its thrifting Ness or its ability to provide value is splashing so much money on this team Well I mean Scarlett melody hobson's also chair of Starbucks and she's on the board for Bloomberg philanthropies but more importantly she's married to George Lucas So I can see the Millennium Falcon making passes and flybys at the beginning of Denver Bronco games It'd be pretty awesome I would like to see that That's pretty good Coming up next Hey Ice cube And he's going to talk about the league that he founded Big three basketball they're starting their 5th season That is

"phil mickelson" Discussed on The Lead

"The growth of any potential rival league? It's quite likely there's going to be a legal challenge because when you become a member of the PGA Tour, you agree to certain regulations in exchange. You become part of this massive pension program and you're eligible for all these bonus programs that are a lot of money. But you agree that you won't play in competing events. It's a little bit like asking your spouse for permission to cheat on them, right? And so all the guys who asked for releases to play in this first Saudi event, the tour declined. And you get into issues of antitrust and that's out of my depth. I don't have that legal expertise, but some people who do feel like the tour is going to lose this legal challenge. And that could blow open the entire structure of professional golf because the dream for Phil and all these other players is maintain their PGA Tour membership, play in their favorite tournaments, keep collecting the pension, but cherry pick a handful of these Saudi tournaments where the money is astronomical. That's what they all want to do if they can. There's various obstacles set up by the tour and by public reaction. But if the PGA Tour loses this battle in court, the Saudi league is all of a sudden going to get an influx of a lot of top players. And what Phil and others have been forecasting, which is a widespread change to professional golf is going to happen. And finally, Alan, given all of this, what do you think Phil Mickelson's legacy around this issue is going to be? It's kind of depends on how the legal challenges go because the final chapter of the story is not written. We don't know what's going to happen with the Saudi tour and how it's going to reshape professional golf. People who say that Phil is tarnished his legacy forever. I think that shows a pretty short collective memory. I mean, Tiger Woods has put his family and his fans to a lot worse than Phil Mickelson has. And he's more beloved than ever. And so I think Phil can reclaim his place in the game as his elder statesman and as his fan favorite, but he's definitely playing with fire when it comes to Saudis and what he chooses. It will affect his legacy. What's happened up to this point? I think his survivable, but if he goes all in with the Saudis and really makes himself a pariah, it's going to be a complex legacy. So there's a road back for Phil, but it does not run through the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And personally, I would love to see him renounce the Saudis and pledge his fealty to the PGA Tour, but feels always been a wild card. He's always been a rebel and he certainly does things his own way. And then you add in the question of, does he actually need that money? What is the level of need and or desperation for that huge Saudi pay day? And that's a whole complicating factor. So where he goes from here is going to be absolutely fascinating. Thank you so much, Alan for breaking this down. It definitely will be fascinating. Yeah, thanks for having me.

"Have to give it back? I mean, there's just a lot of unknown questions. That is a great point that I had considered until just now by being so blunt about the Saudi government in ways that we're embarrassing domestically. He also did say a lot about what the Saudi government does not want being so publicly broadcast. What is the State of the Union right now with the Saudi golf league? How close are they to actually existing? Because it seemed like they were close, but now things have obviously changed radically. Norman and his L ivy golf investments announced right after the shortly after the players that they're moving forward with 8 series events that's going to take place from June through late October. They've announced dates in London, Portland, Oregon, one of Donald Trump's courses in bedminster, New Jersey, Boston, Chicago, Bangkok, Saudi Arabia, and a yet to be determined site for the championship in late October. Again, most of the world's best players, John Ron, hovland, Justin Thomas, nearly all of them have said, you know, as long as the best players are going to be on the PGA Tour, that's where we're going to be. But they're going to be some guys who will go because of the money and because of the shorter schedule and some people speculated that it might end up being a proof of concept deal where a lesser players compete on Norman's league and make a ton of money with it that they otherwise wouldn't have made because they weren't among the top players on tour. And that's going to be pretty tempting for some of the best players in the world. Yeah, and it is worth reiterating that as much as this is a story about foreign governments. As you just said, these are events that will be happening in America, domestically, very close to where the PGA Tour operates. And what has the tour's response been, Mark, formally, to this league doing all of these things that you've just described. The tour has made it clear to its players and agents, you know, a couple of times this year already mandatory meetings at any player who plays in the Saudi league or signs up for the Saudi league. Maybe this is going to be immediately suspended from the PGA Tour and potentially face a lifetime ban. Jay monahan is left no doubt about what's going to happen to players who play in the Saudi league. So like I said earlier in the past, the tour has given waivers for guys to play and overseas events, the Saudi international being one of them, but monaghan has already said, there will be no waivers given for events by the Saudi golf league and on U.S. soil. Yeah, Jay monahan, the president of the PGA Tour has said that he has no interest in aiding and abetting this concept, but it does also seem at the same time Mark like the very possibility of this league has also forced the PGA Tour to change some already. Yeah, I think there have been some benefits for current PGA Tour pros that came out of this. The introduction of the player impact program, which awards $30 million this year. It was $20 million last year to the players. You know, basically in a popularity contest, impact on TV and social media and whatnot, Tiger Woods was the first winner will probably win for the next ten years, even after he's retired. But they increased the purse of the players championship, which is the tourist signature event. They're looking at possibly introducing some sort of team concept in the fall and having some big events for the very top players. So I think they're going to be some changes. Some of it's good. I hate to give Mickelson credit, but he kind of pushed the button and got things rolling, but just did it and possibly the worst way he could have tried. And so the last question I have for you here, Mark, is about that. It's about that quote that you gave us from that unnamed PGA Tour player who said, how in the hell do you come back from that? I mean, we see second, third, fourth, 5th acts in American life all the time, but in your view, can Phil Mickelson actually come back from all of this. I think time heals all wounds. I think we saw what Tiger Woods went through off the course with some of his personal problems. He's still the most beloved player on the PGA Tour that moves the needle more than anyone. I'm not going to say Phil's done. I think Phil's going to have to make some serious apologies and get things right with the.

So Mark, it occurs to me that the biggest headlines when this story first broke were about Phil Mickelson very blithely overlooking human rights abuses. And I get why. But Saudi Arabia funding the super golf league concept was already out there before that, right? I mean, the idea was not nearly as controversial and it actually seems like the biggest reason the PGA Tour was suddenly freaking out about all of this. Was because Phil was openly undermining the business of the PGA Tour, which led to this very long written apology that Phil posted on Twitter. He said, although it doesn't look this way given my recent comments, my actions throughout this process have always been in the best interest of golf, my peer players, sponsors, fans, but then he adds their is the problem of off the record comments being shared without context. And without my consent, but the bigger issue that I use words, I sincerely regret that do not reflect my true feelings or intentions. And ship knock the, again, the writer who's doing the unauthorized bio, he roundly denies that this was an off the record conversation. He said he never said the comments were off the record. He made it clear that the comments from Phil, any information from the conversation with Phil would be used in his upcoming book and he said there was no question in his mind that Phil knew was on the record. Right, and chipmunk himself explained as much recently on the fire pit podcast. I'm a biographer working on a book. He's asked to speak. Every single thing he says to me is going in the book unless we agree expressly that it's not. And if he wants to set some ground rules and if you wanted to go off of the record, I would have pushed back really hard because this was my one chance to talk to him. But he never asked to go off the record. He never said it, it was on background. He never said this is just between me and you or tried intimate anything like that. In the text, beforehand, and we got in the phone. He just started talking. At that point, it is an on the record interview with a biographer. That's not even in question. I think every other writer in the world would have the same attitude. And so all we have from Phil since he gave those quotes, which he says, we're off the record, but ship Doug says we're very much on the record talking to a journalist. Is that Twitter apology? And this is where I think of what Randall shambling came out and said in public, Mark, because this is the former PGA Tour player. And now the golf channel analyst, who said, quote, just red fill statement, it's 6 paragraphs, the first paragraph sets the stage for him being a victim, the second paragraph is in pretending to be an activist, the third and fourth paragraphs are about spin and damage control slash money, and the 5th and 6th are him saying he's a good guy. Yeah, Rory McIlroy, who's, you know, one of the most insightful and well respected players on tour, you know, said he thought Nicholson's comments were surprising and disappointing and it's just sad. I don't want to kick someone while he's dying, obviously, but I thought they were naive selfish egotistical ignorant. A lot of words to describe that interaction he had with ship knock. It was just very surprising and disappointing, sad. What were the responses from the people who pay fill to advertise their products? What was the fallout in terms of the marketing and advertising world? Yeah, one by one, we lost several of his top sponsors, KPMG, ended its relationship with him, am still light, ended its relationship, work day. Ended its relationship. Callaway, which basically gave him a sponsorship agreement through the rest of his career, paused their relationship. The American Express tournament in la Quinta, California, which Mickelson hosted and the tournament also benefited his foundation. It ended its relationship with him and then said that the tournament would no longer benefit his charity. So there's several severe blows to his pocketbook and his reputation. So his sponsors have been leaving him and we have not seen him on tour at all. Since those comments emerged, but what we don't have clarity on Mark, it seems like is whether the PGA Tour the thing he tried to create this revolt against has actually suspended him themselves. The PGA Tour does not announce publicly discipline of its players. Dustin Johnson took some time away. He said he had registered back moving some jet skis. It was later reported that there were other reasons for that and he was actually suspended, but Jay monahan, the PGA Tour commissioner at the players championship, a few weeks ago, was asked to fill could have played in the players championship if he wanted. And I was a little bit surprised because monaghan had said he had not had a conversation with Mickelson at that point. I have not talked to Phil since he made his comments and since he said that he was stepping away. And like I said, I think the ball is in his court. I would welcome a phone call from him. But it's hard for me to talk about the different scenarios that could play out. And so as difficult as it is to read some of the things that were said, ultimately, the conversation will be had when he's ready to have it. And I'll be ready to have it as well. Is Phil serving a suspension right now, you know, I don't think so. Will he serve some sort of suspension when he comes back? That's going to be up to him and monaghan again, it doesn't have any bearing on him not playing in the masters and you just got to wonder if Fred Ridley, the master's chairman, Augusta national chairman, made a phone call and said, hey, not this year. We don't want the negative attention, you're too hot right now, but we'll see if and Winfield comes back. Right, I mean, the master is a separate entity as you alluded to, apart from the PGA Tour. It's run by Augusta national and meanwhile, Phil has never made an official announcement about this week in Augusta. And so with Phil Mickelson at age 51, who may or may not be punished by the people who he tried to overthrow, I mean, what is next for him at this point in this latter phase of his life? I think the big question going forward, Pablo, is when do we see him again? Do we see him back on the PGA Tour? He's the defending PGA champion. The PGA Championship at southern hills in May, what we see him there. I think what's kind of been lost in this is we've asked is it has he been disciplined by the PGA Tour, can he come back to the PGA Tour? Does he have a spot in Saudi? After what he said about the people financing that league, did he take money from the Saudis and does he.

"To get a haircut. It's not just any haircut. It's super cuts. Here it is. Biggest moment of the legendary career. Phil defeats father time. That was just ten months ago at the 2021 PGA Championship when Phil Mickelson became the oldest major winner in the history of golf at age 50. An unprecedented trajectory that should have carried him to Augusta Georgia, where the masters are underway this week. But Phil Mickelson is not playing in his favorite tournament. In fact, Phil hasn't been seen on the PGA Tour at all in months. And nobody's sure when they'll see him again. So today, as Augusta praise for the return of Tiger Woods, Mark reports the story of his rival, the legend in exile, the man who isn't there. Because Phil Mickelson cozied up to an authoritarian government. And tried to overthrow the PGA itself. I'm Pablo Torre. It's Wednesday, April 6th. This is ESPN daily. CSX, a growing Fortune 500 logistics company, has immediate openings for freight train conductors. If you're looking for a rewarding career offering paid training at nearly $25 per hour, competitive benefits, and you share a passion for great service, apply today at CSX dot com slash careers. That's CSX dot com slash careers. CSX committed to supporting military and veteran families and their communities. CSX is an equal opportunity employer. The obvious huge story at the beginning of master's week is whether Tiger Woods is or isn't gonna play all of the drama there, but I'm calling you one of the show because I need to dive into your reporting on the saga of a guy who we know for certain is not going to be playing in Augusta this week. The foremost rival to Tiger Woods, I'm talking about Phil Mickelson. And Mark for people who don't remember here, right? It's worth pointing this out. Less than a year ago, we were celebrating Phil, as the oldest major champion ever, he had just won the PGA at age 50. And now he's about to miss what would have been his 30th masters tournament. And that's the tournament he's called his favorite. It's the one he's won three times, the one he hasn't missed since 1994. And so we're gonna go through step by step, what you've reported here and your understanding of a very complex story, but just off the top in a couple sentences, can you tell us why Phil Mickelson will not be in Augusta this week? Pablo, he's taken a leave of absence, what we don't know is whether or not it's his own decision to take that leave of absence or if someone at the PGA Tour told him to take some time off, the tour does not publicly disclose discipline of players, that being said that has nothing to do with these situation at Augusta national golf club because the club controls the masters and we don't know if Fred Ridley, the chairman, picked up the phone and said, hey, Phil, not this year, or if this truly is Phil's decision not to be here this week. And all this drama Mark, it really stems from these comments that film made that came to light in February about a proposed new golf league, funded by the government of Saudi Arabia that would have competed with the PGA Tour, so remind us how Phil's comments became public. Alan ship knock who used to work for Sports Illustrated. And some other golf publications has his own website now on fire pit collective. He's for the last several months been working on an unauthorized biography. Of Mickelson and his talk to probably more than 100 people about Mickelson and he'd reached out to Phil and his team several times to get Mickelson to sit down with him and talk and he tried a few times and it never never came to fruition and then last fall. You know, just as he was finishing up the manuscript and about to ship it to his publisher, Mickelson reached out and said, hey, I want to talk. So how would you describe what Phil Mickelson said? I mean, it was mind numbing that it would even come out of his mouth, especially considering you were speaking to a journalist and a guy riding in an authorized biography about him, but you know, he called the Saudis scary motherfuckers and said, we know they killed this journalist. We know that kill gay people, you know, knowing all this. Why would I even consider it? Oh, because it'll give me leverage with the PGA Tour. I mean, it was just he couldn't have said much of anything that could have been worse. No, I mean, he literally says, quote, they're scary motherfuckers get involved with, we know they killed Khashoggi referring to Washington Post reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, we know they have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay, knowing all this, why would I even consider it question mark? Because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reshape how the PGA Tour operates. And that, I mean, I know that Phil's kind of a loose cannon, but this felt like a new sort of bar being set in terms of regrettable things you say to a media person. No, on top of that a guy riding an unauthorized biography about you, but I mean, he didn't stop there. I mean, he. He admitted that he had been listed three other PGA Tour players to pay for attorneys to write up and draft the operating agreement for the proposed breakaway tour. So not only was he in discussions with the organizers and financiers of a rival league to the PGA Tour, but he was involved in actually creating the league and, you know, trying to recruit other players to join it..

"There's a lot of solutions stone but some dates awhile to find him on your own so I'd be happy to after eating. Also be happy to kind of referee is the third wheel. But i don't think it's a great idea to do during a major championship and the reason is takes away from the major championship. I think it puts all the focus on on the group and not on the tournament itself. In a major you want to elevate the status of the event in a regular tour event. I think it's great. I think it'd be fine because you want to create interest in that. Pj tour vet. The majors don't need the interest. They they want to let their their own history Be the story line. And that's why. I didn't think it was great in the majors. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens. The door. I can't wait to see it last question for that. You go aaron rodgers.

"That's how it's done a man like you or that's how it's done my man young ones in your face intrusive and the other is kind of funny based on your function and so what's what social media's allowed me to do is presented in the right tone or light that it's meant because sometimes it's not read the way that oh yes said. Oh yeah yeah that that is one of the biggest social media shadow to me right there two times me how you doing keep moving. He just bail on us he got kicked out and soon. We don't do it. Zooms out the best blood. Phil fucking do i want to get into. I wanna get into his brain. Yeah yeah see. What's going on into their What's in the works. So we got cut offer second. But i just thought maybe you can. Only take me a doses. That happens to me all the time too. I thought you were doing that on the opposite end that was not the case classic technology. But i do enjoy the you've taken over your social media and the way you do things and say things is fantastic Listening to you talk though. Maybe it's just golfing general but seems like your very deep thinker. Have you always been this way are you. are you well studied. Do you like books or golf. Just kinda captivated your entire life and you just love the sport so much all the way in there so when i get interested in something i kind of dive all in like oh. I almost overboard. It's two false. I get back to that balance thing. And so but i try to learn everything. I can to To be knowledgeable as that canon a particular area of interest in so The most you know. So i feel like i have a reasonable amount of knowledge in certain areas and absolutely no knowledge and other areas and i would prefer to ask questions because i always was feel like when you're asking questions you're learning something new when you're talking you're just reiterating what you already know. I i would be. I like be much more inquisitive but You know it just depends what we're talking about that kind of changes the narrative. Okay so when you're working it seems like you dive elaine. You've said it a couple of times whenever you're working on golf. Do you still have the same routine that you had whenever you're younger now or is it much different in. How often do you just go down there. In just hit phil mickelson flop shots. Because every time. I in turn like let's say i have a sixty year. No big deal. It's about seventy yards. Found out this morning on hole seven by the way that would have been nice to. No one would have been a little bit better piece of information having my golf game but anytime you turn sideways in flatmate. You're watching someone. Do like phil mickelson does. And then you just go out there normally either blade it hit a straight up in the air to the right or you somehow get lucky and it goes and everybody's like oh. My god gravel is that is that is kind of become. I remember the one over your head that one time that was a mind blower from me is is the short game. Something you've always just been good at or are you good at it. Because that's all you work like so much on at all times. When i was a kid my dad had a little chipping area in our backyard and putting green. And so i would just go out there and hit balls. 'cause i couldn't really go to the golf course. And all i did was shot since i thirty yards and it got very monotonous. Hit the same shot over and over. So i go behind the avocado tree. I go back around the the the trees and and rocklin so forth. And so i would get creative as hitting shots and you kind of learn You learn a couple of things. But what i would say how does that. There's really only one way to chip effectively. Because you're coming in with no coverage on the ball you're coming in with loft at the leading. Edge is coming first so you have to have your weight forward. That's your way forward and drive the club down into the ground and most people when they when they do that their hands either come back or they're week of back and the leading edge comes up in blades at now. You can kind of flip your hands a little bit if you have a good live it like. It's the ball sending the first cutter sitting up but that technique will not work all the time and so That's why i prefer and believe that the technique where you have your weight forward your hands forward. And he drive the clamp down on the ground be consistent every time delay that club flat. Move that ball off your left toe. Get the ball off your front left there. You go and open that face flat and just drive down into the ground ball pop up like i think it makes sense by the way the your childhood was spent within thirty green on my childhood was spent kicking a soccer ball off the side of a house. Worked out for me. It's worked for you much better. i can potentially. He's going to do that. I see the wanamaker trophy. I see better than ever. It really does feel like you're playing your best. Golf you have ever played is that i heard drew brees say this one time and it was i think last year maybe the year before and he said as you get older in the sport of football your brain gets so much better. You're just hoping your body can hang on so you can take advantage of all your knowledge..

"Dredged into the storm of phil mickelson fans who who you know what they have gotten plenty of reasons to like phil and they probably ignore a lot of reasons. Why they shouldn't phil phil. Yes phil can be a divisive person as well within their rights. Yes how fan. I got the tiniest little corner of this. Just you know in my tweet. That phil responded to is not even really critical. It was just. I was just genuinely wondering what his end game was on. But even still you know my. Dm's filled up with people. Just call me a hack and say like how's that taste stuff like that. Which is fine only does not bother me. Wait how did it taste. It didn't really taste like much. It was sorta like eating of july third. Kinda just woke up to it on july fourth but united breakfast burrito in my future. I think that the one strange thing is that rob snell never. This was a one way. War rob snell wrote the article. He tweeted it out one time and then he moved onto the rest of his job. Which says a court reporter again for the detroit news. He did not respond. He did not address fills salvos in any way. I reached out to him. He got back to me quickly wished me well hoped i had a good weekend respectfully declined to talk about anything related to this story so he did not really engage. I think the idea that he was doing this for major personal clout doesn't really check out So i think that that's just worth noting. Also this is. This is the kind of story i think. Now when we start to do year end lists of remember what happened gulf in twenty twenty one like six months from now. We're going to be like what the hell happened in detroit. We're gonna forget about it. We're going to have a major championship. The british open here in a week and a half really. We're going to start to focus on other things. The olympics will follow that fedex. Cup the ryder cup and we will totally forget that. In late june. Early july phil mickelson took beef with the local detroit news reporter unless this is the first of many unless this is just fills new running. Bit just going after people on twitter. Weaponising is so. I'll happily get into the fray on fail bring it on bring it on. Fill all right. Do you wanna talk about the winner. Should we talk about cam.

I'm sure that they have no connection. So anyway Phil came out and essentially said he repudiated the article. He didn't say that it was incorrect. In fact his lawyer basically made it clear that everything in the article was correct but he just went pretty hard at this guy said that based off this article he was not going to return to detroit

Can you explain the weird mickelson saga. Yeah i mean.

"It was all brought on by Phil Mickelson winning the PGA Yesterday at the age of 50. I believe the oldest coffer by four years to win a major, which was outstanding. Also a lot of outstanding MBA action this weekend. Another question I had for you, Chris. When I came in today, I've had a full boat of questions, not many answers. But I'll answer first, I said to you what was the most important or the most impressive part of the first weekend of the NBA playoffs? I personally thought and there were a lot of things to choose from. What stuck with me because we haven't seen a ton of the Big three play for the Nets. But I believe Durant, Harden and Irving combined for 82 points in their win against Thebes, Boston Celtics and again I know the Celtics are are a man down at least But I thought, um, I thought with the Nets did their big three. They came to play in the first game of that, Siri. I could swing that way with you on the Nets there, I I think I would also throw into the conversation What the Blazers did against the Nuggets on the road. Willard was fantastic. I think last night was a fun game between the Grizzlies upset a Nate seed. Winning Game one against the number one seed, the Utah Jazz and the Jazz. If you just look at Metrics Top five defensive team Top five offensive team, they shot more three point shots. Anyone else in the game was important because the way the game is played. Now you shoot threes. You make threes. You're usually one of the best teams in all basketball. That's just the way it's gone. Tell that to the heat. Well, but Utah, you know, M Barclay was roasting them last night was saying, like, and this is something you guys should ask him tomorrow is, you know, he kept saying you gotta change your strategy. The threes aren't falling. You gotta figure out a different way to attack a team mid game. You have to change your strategy overall, for the way you play your games. But in that moment you gotta go to plan B and I agree, But that was also a good game. Hawks Knicks That was excited Tastic fans in the garden. Everything about that. Everyone screaming nephew, Trey Young tree hits the shot at the like, Trey Young playing great basketball. What d Rose did. I mean, d Rose was fantastic in that game as well. No jobs, Randall. Not as much, Noah and then Okay, so speaking, not as much, and the Davis knows much the Lakers. They lose the sons. So to answer your question. What did I find most impressive of the NBA weekend because as the list off a bunch of different things, how about this, that there was good basketball because I think in the season this year, it wasn't very good Stars were sitting out. You didn't quite know what was going on the play in tournament the seedings Now that we're here at the playoffs game, one of all of these Syriza's It was fantastic to me. Takeaway is I love seeing fans in the stands. I love seeing that they have an impact on the game and the player's air coming out there playing John Trey Young Derrick Rose was good, the three from the Nets, the sons, they get a big win in game. There's a lot in the N B. A. That was fun over the weekend, so I'm just I'm glad that Though the switch was foot down the moment the playoffs start some of the young guys without playoff experience. We're the guys that rose to the occasion, Phillip Brooks Dillon Brooks had 31 I think I I think you can argue that Devin Booker had is good at a game one is anybody in the NBA playoff time?.

Are the Kansas City Chiefs Going To Land Julio Jones?

"Let's talk. julio jones my friend. Because i mean look it's a long shot i'm going to say it oddsmakers think it's a long shot. The chiefs are thirty. Three to one odds to land. Julio jones in a trade which is way longer odds than many many other teams. So las vegas does not think. Julio jones is going to land in kansas city but julio jones is gonna land somewhere and it sounds like it's not in philadelphia this year. Where are you at all this. I'll say this vegas didn't think phil mickelson was going to win this as last major. Guess what a that happened. So i don't know where julio jones is gonna land. I do think. Kansas city actually makes sense. I'm surprised vegas hasn't bumped it up a little bit as based on the past knowledge of how aggressive brett. Vh is the fact that julio jones said he wants to play for a winner he wants to play for a contender. You sit basically said give me the hell out of atlanta. You know If you wanna play for winter you wanna play for a contender. You wanna play for a good quarterback now you kate. A city checks all those boxes. You have a hall of fame coach. Andy reid i would. I would think that those numbers would be higher. What are your thoughts on this. Well let me kick it back to you with this. Albert breer reported today that basically that would probably take second round. Pick to get julio jones. Now that's it like. I think it sounds good on paper. Yeah i think it sounds good on paper to julio jones. i'm probably in the conservative camp of. I think the chiefs are already more loaded than any other team out there. They've already gotten their the last two years. I don't care what the bills in the browns have done. The chiefs are gonna make mincemeat of them. Whatever they play so. I don't know that we need julio jones so so you know to me. I'd rather keep that second round pick

"Six under Karni. Phil Mickelson after the boat, you know, at six on the tea here, the Far 5/7 is par five Gonna play. Quite differently than it has First three rounds when into the Players face is a little bit off the left, maybe coming out of 11 o'clock here. Gotta avoid the sandy areas to the right. The person with the driver makes contact. It seems like he likes this one working down the left hand side of the fairway. That's gonna be just fine. Here's what you've missed so far. Phil Mickelson missed the fairway at one dumped it on the front of the green and three putted. Brooks kept guy had this for our first two strokes. Swing of the day. 12.5 ft sends this up. The slope needs to turn looking good has a chance he made it. Books kept up with the burning at the first that didn't take long. Nicholson with the buggy kept going to seven under, and he's our new leader. At the second kept a hit It left hit a tree had all kinds of problems in the sand down the left hand side made seven and Phil Mickelson had this for a three stroke. Swing fills problems. Arts in that Russia's wells really dried out. Face open gets it just on the green that working up to the whole out of the left, and that's well done for Phil Mickelson inside two ft. That will be for birdie to get back to seven under here in the second. Two strokes. Swing it one. He's just gonna walk right up and tap it in. Take that right back to seven under. This could be a two or possibly three strokes swing. Hear it, too. And that's what it would be. Phil wasn't done. Here was his third at five. Phil Mickelson walks into the sandy area here and part 3 50 may need to try to land it. On top of that. Ball released down little down soap, splashed it out, lands it on that release you towards the cup out right going left at it Pickles and holds it from the sandy area heard five years back. Seven under par. Just when you thought Brooks was gonna make one, then the very next hole fill Mrs Green can't make his far Brooks back in the fairway smelling blood in the water. Works capital with 120 yards to a front right hole location. Wind blowing hard from the golfers left. And kept it takes this whole high left. That's a beauty. That's about five FT away and Brooks captain with a great opportunity here to pick up a shot and get to six under par. Well done. Right. We couldn't written a script.
