Phil Mickelson Contemplates "Drastic Changes" In Golfing Future

Ahead of today's inauguration ceremonies for President Barack Obama's second term, golfer Phil Mickelson "sent shockwaves" through the PGA Tour Humana Challenge when he said that political landscape in the U.S. "was causing him to seriously contemplate his future in golf." Mickelson: "I’m not going to jump the gun ... but 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." When asked if the election results played a role in his decision to sever ties with the Padres’ ownership group, Mickelson said, “Yeah, absolutely” (N.Y. TIMES, 1/21).
