Phil Mickelson is not happy with what Detroit Reporter writes


Thursday afternoon, Phil Mickelson turned on the golf course for the rocket mortgage classic at Detroit Golf Club.

First round he couldn’t go better as he carded a three-under, 69 and three birdies on his last four holes. However, after the round, Mickelson made it clear he probably won’t be returning to the event in the future.

Why? Well, the Detroit News published a story earlier in the week detailing a gambling conflict from more than 20 years ago involving Mickelson.

The documents obtained from the writer, Rob Snell, highlight how a Michigan bookmaker failed to honor a bet that Mickelson won. According to a report from Golf digests, Mickelson and his friends owed $ 500,000.

Mickelson responded to a fan on Twitter and called the reporter by name, making it clear he was not happy.

“I don’t understand people like Rob Snell who are in opportunistic and selfish actions preventing people from wanting to come to Detroit and helping in any way they can,” he said on Twitter.

After the first round, Mickelson asked if he would be coming back to Detroit Golf Club for any future events.

“I don’t see me back,” Mickelson added definitely. “Not that I don’t like the people here and they weren’t great, but not with the kind … things that happen.”

He will be back out on the course tomorrow afternoon alongside Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama.
