Phil Mickelson on FBI Reports: “I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong.”

phil

According to the Associated Press, Phil Mickelson confirmed that FBI agents that were investigating insider trading approached him at Jack Nicklaus’ famed Memorial Tournament this week in regards to possible insider trading between he, gambler Billy Walters and billionaire investor Carl Icahn. The hall of famer who’s racked up several wins and five major titles has come out and said that he has done “absolutely nothing wrong” according to the Press. The insider trades involved Clorox Co. and the FBI was also looking at some potential trades made through Dean’s Co. as well but the main focus is what happened with Clorox. Ichan is one of the wealthiest people in America with a whopping net worth of $20 billion in due to him buying out underperforming companies to make a massive amount of money and some those companies included eBay, Dell and Apple. He is the 18th wealthiest person in America according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, Walters is an icon is the sports betting community as he has made a ridiculous amount of money off of betting which led to him owning several golf courses and auto dealerships. He’s bet millions upon millions on Super Bowls alone and claims that he hasn’t had a losing season. He won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am along with Fredrik Jacobson back in 2008 as he’s supposed to be a pretty good golfer. He’s also made connections with many celebrities and other PGA Tour pros where they’ve played golf together. Walters has a massive net worth of $125 million and that has continued to grow with all of the golf courses and dealerships he’s making money off of to go along with the money he’s making from all of the betting.

Phil mentions that this situation won’t stop him in his pursuit at winning the U.S. Open which would give him the rare and coveted career grand slam.

“It’s not going to change the way I carry myself,” Mickelson said according to the AP. “Honestly, I’ve done nothing wrong. I’m not going to walk around any other way.

WATCH: The Trick Shot That Ruined Model, Liz Dickson’s Butt

As we all know by now, model Liz Dickson sued Playboy and radio host Kevin Klein for hitting her in the butt with a golf club after a trick shot goes wrong. The model was flat on her stomach with a tee in between her butt cheeks. Well, Klein took the swing and missed and ended up nailing one of her cheeks causing a massive bruise. The video is below courtesy of TMZ.

Model Sues Playboy Over a Golf Stunt That Involved a Tee in Her Butt

liz-dickson-photos-1

First of all, What?! Why?! How?! I don’t know but according to Deadspin and TMZ, model Liz Dickson is suing Playboy and a radio host for a stunt that involved a golf ball, a tee and her booty. It’s pretty obvious that the radio host was apparently trying to hit a golf shot off her booty and must of nailed her cheeks instead of the ball. Dickson has filed a complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court against Playboy Enterprises and Kevin Klein who is the co-host of the Playboy Morning Show. Liz is looking for $500,000, that’s right, half a mill.

She could definitely shout C.R.E.A.M (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) if she gets that much dough. She’s also seeking “punitive damages” for battery and negligence. It all started long long ago in a land far far away….well at the Playboy Golf Finals in 2012 on March 30th where Ms. Dickson was invited to help host according to the complaint from CBS Los Angeles:

“Dickson agreed to have a photo taken of her lying on her stomach “with her buttocks partially exposed” so that Kevin Klein, co-host of the show, could hit a golf ball put atop a tee that was inserted between her butt cheeks, the suit alleges.

However, Klein missed the tee and “struck plaintiff on the buttocks, causing her injuries and damages,” the suit states.

Dickson suffered pain, suffering, worrying and anxiety as a result of her injuries, the suit states.

Below is a copy of Ms. Dickson’s lawsuit and it says that she sustained severe bodily injuries, a portion that are permanent.”

Dickson

OK, first of all, how come she didn’t complain about this earlier? This happened back in 2012. It’s 2014. Secondly, why did she agree to do the trick in the first place? Did they force her or something? Did they offer her a ton of money? Because, if you’re trying to hold a tee between your booty cheeks, I’d assume it would be hard to keep the tee steady enough for the guy to take the swing. Also, she would have to squeeze her butt cheeks together pretty tight which I’m sure would be quite uncomfortable. Now, I also got to put at least 50% of the blame on the dude taking the shot. If you’re going to do a stunt like that then KNOW WHAT THE HECK YOU’RE DOING!

Because whipping a golf club around will easily reach over 100 mph so can you imagine the impact….on her butt? A butt injury is one of, if not the most cringing injury I mean…it’s your butt! So, let’s hope that Dickson is continuing to make a recovery and hope nothing but the best for her going forward. Also, let this be a tip to all of you out there. If you’re not a great golfer, don’t hit a golf shot off a woman’s booty. Not your wife’s your girlfriend’s, your female best friend’s, your Mistress’s NOBODY’S! Because injuries like this occur and you live with guilt.

Patrick Reed: “I’m a top 5 player in the world right now”

Patrick-Reed-WGC-Cadillac-trophy_3097827

Well, this might be a controversy stirrer for some. Patrick Reed won the WGC Cadillac Championship on Sunday going wire to wire for the victory and afterwards told NBC how great he’s played and where he stands in the golf world.

“I’ve worked so hard, I’ve won a lot in my junior career, did great things in (my) amateur career, was 6-0 in match play in NCAAs, won NCAAs two years in a row, got third individually one year, and now I have three wins out here on the PGA Tour.” Reed said according to GolfChannel.com.

“I just don’t see a lot of guys that have done that, besides Tiger Woods, of course, and, you know, the other legends of the game. It’s just one of those things, I believe in myself and – especially with how hard I’ve worked – I’m one of the top five players in the world.”

Of course the top 5 comment lit up social media like Broadway, the Vegas Strip or Chicago on a summer night. Not to mention the comment where he said not too many guys did what he did might be disrespectful as well. He seems like a pretty nice guy, just those comments were a little too much I mean, your college and junior careers? This is the PGA Tour son! I appreciate his confidence but he’s not top five, not even close. He hasn’t even faced the drama and stress of playing in a major yet. Wait until the Masters come along buddy. Again, seems like a nice guy but he’s young and I guess he let those three wins get to him. Plus, his caddy’s a chick who happens to be his wife so that makes him feel great too I’m sure.

I was listening to a bit of CBS Sports radio and Amy Lawrence even threw him in the same sentence as NFL cornerback Richard Sherman but all she said was “He’s not Richard Sherman but golf’s a gentleman’s game” so it wasn’t a big deal and Amy is a gentle lady so I can understand her comments because she’s full of awesome. Yes, golf is a gentleman’s game and unfortunately we’ve seen some pretty mouthy players over the years including Ian Poulter, Steve Elkington, Rory Sabatinni and Sergio Garcia. Look, y’all are professional golfers making millions of dollars, just shut up and play. As for Patrick Reed, I got two sides of this. I don’t think he’s even close to how the guys I named above are and also, he’s real young as I mentioned and I think over time, that quote will wear down.

In the winner’s conference Sunday, Reed mentioned his personal top five players which included Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell, and Dustin Johnson and of course himself. It’s easy for us to say hey, this guys a total d-bag but again, this is the first time we’ve heard him say something else and very well could be his last and we should most certainly take that into account.

One thing that Patrick can definitely feel goes about is this. He’s only the fifth player behind Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Rory Mcilroy to win three times before the age of 24. Pretty elite if you ask me.

So, what do you think about Patrick Reed’s comments? Cocky? Just really confident? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Also, for fun, since Patrick mentioned his personal top five players, why don’t you name yours? Who are your personal top five players right now?

Tiger Woods’ Former Mistress, Joslyn James, is on Government’s Most Wanted List for Being a Terrible Mother

espnapi_pga_g_woods05jr_576x324_wmain

Well y’all, porn star and former mistress of Tiger Woods, Joslyn James has done more than just screw Tiger and other dudes. She made the biggest mistake of her porn career and that’s screwing the government. According to TMZ Sports, James nailed herself on a government “Most Wanted” list for bailing on almost $20,000 in child support for her 14 year old son. What an amazing parent right?! When she gave birth to her son, she was ordered to pay child support to the dad since she was the breadwinner in the relationship. However, despite the thousands upon thousands or even millions of dollars she’s earning, she still decided to play the role of porn star and act her way through the mess but now let’s say the government will definitely be sticking things in her for this account of stupidity.

In her record that is and get this, she’s on the division’s “Most Wanted” list meaning she’s in the top 100 in the state’s 370,000 child support cases according to TMZ Sports. Man, I feel bad for the son, he’s probably like “What the f*#k mom?!?, nothing says I love you son by not paying my child support!”. Sure, some may say that he’s ignoring it right now but 14 year olds are a lot smarter than you think and pay attention to detail. A spokesman DCS told TMZ Sports that the list is “the worst of the worst. It signifies you’ve made no effort. If you’re currently making any payments, you’re not on the list.” That’s just awesome! Truly, one of the best mothers anywhere! Of course James’ rep says that she loves her child and that she’s a doting mother.

Yup, of course she is, talking about being biased for your client. Just face the facts, Joslyn is just a crappy mother, I mean it’s possible that she really does love her child but if this was true then why wouldn’t you pay child support when you work in the porn industry which makes tons and tons of money. It’s an ENTERTAINMENT business, she has money. Plus, you can’t tell me Tiger didn’t lend her some money when they were twisting the sheets. $20,000 should be pocket change for this woman. I mean, top 100 on a “Most wanted” list? Seriously? All that porn work has been messing with her head apparently. Well, I guess Tiger had a thing for the baddies huh?

Tiger Woods Might Be Focused More on Money Than Prestige as He is Urged to ‘Respect’ the WGC-HSBC Champions

Tiger-Woods_9

The WGC-HSBC Champions tournament has been quite a popular one and golf’s biggest star hasn’t played in the event in a couple of years. Instead, Tiger Woods has decided to play in exhibitions that offered solid payouts. HSBC’s sponsorship chief has urged Woods to respect the bank’s large investment in the tournament and play the event this year instead of “meaningless money-making opportunities”. HSBC’s global head of sponsorship Giles Morgan said that the bank had “had words” with the different golf tours about impressing on players the importance of appearing at the sport’s biggest events according to Yahoo Sports.

“I do think the tours — and I think the tours are working on this — should make sure that there is respect to the tournaments,” Morgan said in an interview in Singapore according to Yahoo Sports.

“As opposed to playing in meaningless… money-making opportunities around the World Golf Championships (WGC).”

Morgan also added: “It’s up to the tours to enforce the criteria to their membership. And we’ve expressed our position to the tours, which is that we know they can’t enforce their players to play and that’s fine, we understand that.

“But we do think that players need to be respectful of… these major events (which) are really at the top and the pinnacle and the lifeblood of the sport.”

So, this situation feels like it can go both ways. Yes, it’s kind of disrespectful to not play in a golf tournament that people work hard to put together but at the same time, the golfers can do whatever they want. HSBC gets plenty of golfers to their tournament but I understand that this is Tiger Woods we’re talking about and the more Woods is in the tournament, the more boost the tournament gets. The question is, why hasn’t Woods been playing in this tournament? Is it a money issue? Because if it truly is then that’s a shame on Woods’ part since the man just earned over a billion dollars for his career. However, could it be a greed thing on HSBC”s part as well? Or do they really want more players to play to help bring more fans to the event? The tournament is already highly popular but I guess I can kind of see the frustration from Morgan.

I’d too be wondering why a player of Woods caliber would play in any other tournament but mine but not in a selfish way but in a sense of “Man, am I doing something wrong with this tournament?”. Mr. Morgan should probably chill out though I mean, Woods is only one golfer out of the several that join the tournament plus, the HSBC Champions is still one of the bigger tournaments in the world so he should just let it go. Besides, it’s only been a two-year absence so I don’t really see the big deal but it can honestly go both ways considering Woods was taking part in supposedly “meaningless opportunities”. Again, if Woods was missing out on the HSBC because of money and nothing else then he should be very ashamed of himself as he is easily one of the richest people on earth. So, what do you guys think? Is Tiger Woods losing respect for the HSBC Champions? Is Giles Morgan over reacting to the situation? Maybe Morgan’s comments are kind of knock to the players who are committed to the event? Who knows, but please leave your comments below on this situation!

PHOTO: Natalie Gulbis Plays Combination of Golf and Baseball With Kids at a School

Natalie-Gulbis

LPGA Tour superstar Natalie Gulbis always seems like she’s staying busy both on and off the course and on Wednesday, it was no exception as she played a game that’s the combination of both golf and baseball that’s simply called “Golf Ball”. She played the sport with kids at Saddleback Valley Christian School and from what I see, it looks like traditional baseball except the players use clubs instead of bats and a big ball that’s on the ground instead of a baseball that’s getting pitched to them.

It looks like a lot of fun but just don’t let guys like John Daly or Bubba Watson play! They’d hit a home run every time! Just like footgolf (The combination of soccer and golf), golf ball looks like a very fun sport especially when you’re hitting. One of the things that definitely makes look awesome is the fact that you’re going to hit the ball every time even if it results in an out. Way to go Nats! Good choice of sport for the kids to enjoy!

LPGA Tour Star, Former College Golf Legend Dies in Drunk Car Accident

1391176036008-Jg-052407-Downey-6

Some sad news as on Jan.31, LPGA Tour player Danielle Downey died in a horrific car accident after she was out with couple of friends at an Auburn, AL restaurant. It was reported that she had a few drinks and was driving at an extreme rate, crashing her car into a tree and causing it to flip several times before it eventually made a stop as she ejected from the vehicle according to Yahoo Sports and AL.com. Her friend, Diana Ramage was trying to take the keys away from her as she knew that Danielle was wasted drunk but it was too late. Downey was only 33 years old and had one win on the LPGA Tour. She was most notable for her outstanding career at Auburn University as she was a three-time All-American, she mad the All-SEC team four times and also led Auburn to the SEC Championships in 2000 and 2003. Although it’s horrible what happened, why didn’t her friend Diana try to tackle her or something instead of letting her take off with the keys? See, this is why I don’t drink or smoke.

Look, if you don’t know how to be a responsible friend then don’t go out drinking with her if you know she’ll get drunk as a skunk. Also, if you’re going to drink hardcore like that, don’t be anywhere near a vehicle. It’s absolutely ridiculous that people are either getting killed by drunk drivers or drunk people are killing themselves. If there’s one thing in this country that should be illegal, it’s alcohol in my honest opinion and I don’t think anyone can make an excuse for it because the stupidity of making yourself drunk and looking like a complete idiot while potentially putting yourself and others in danger is foolishness and dumb. Also, if anyone is drinking hardcore to help “clear their stress”. well I have news for you, getting drunk isn’t going to solve your problem so please just grow up and live your life right and stop stressing out over stupid stuff. Because think about it, probably at least 80% of the stuff you’re stressing out over is based on YOUR OWN ACTIONS so basically, man up (or lady up) son, there’s many other things you can do to clear your stress.

So, although this story is sad, it angers me that Danielle was silly enough to put herself in that kind of risk and I’m not sure if Diana was a little drunk too or not but she COULD have stopped her. If Danielle didn’t have any type of weapon on her then I don’t see why she couldn’t stop her. It’s just one of those stories that I can’t feel completely sad about because Danielle did it to herself. She would have still been alive and her family would’ve been all OK but now they’re upset from Danielle’s stupid mistake and that’s an absolute shame and this is a grown woman we’re talking about. Yes, she was still very young but 33 isn’t 21 my friends. And just to think that teenagers are getting their hands on drinks and getting behind the wheel. Driving is already dangerous as it is without consuming drugs or alcohol. I hope nothing but the best for Danielle’s family but just letting you know that she easily could have been still alive right now. If the world wants to fill their lives with alcohol then the world’s stupidity level is on an all-time high. Rest in peace Danielle, you’ll be dearly missed.

Funny Photo: Is This Caddy Staring at Holly Sonders’ Butt While She Lines Up Her Putt?

What’s good y’all? I hope you enjoyed my awesome rhyme in the headline! I couldn’t help but grab this picture of Golf Channel broadcasting superstar Holly Sonders at the Humana Challenge as it looks like her caddy is staring at the one place where i think most dudes would stare…well…her booty. She was lining up her putt when this occurred and as we know, Holly was a pretty good golfer and still is solid. Now, I;m pretty sure he’s probably just looking at her slope on the green and helping her prepare for putt, but it just looks funny from the camera angle as it literally almost looks like he’s staring at the golf journalist’s booty butt. I also can’t help but laugh at his facial expression, quite funny considering what the picture looks like. Again, it’s more than likely he was just doing his job but it just looks like he’s like “Oh, DAT BOOTY!”. Holly, you’re very talented and I really respect your work but I thought this was too funny. Think they’ll get a little kick out of this?

MUST WATCH: Man Falls Through Roof of Golf Shop and Nobody Cares

OK, now this is quite the “WTF?!” moment. A man randomly just fell through the roof of a golf shop with no explanation whatsoever. Gary Williams of Golf Channel’s Morning Drive talked to one of my golf journalism inspirations, Geoff Shackelford about the situation which includes the clip of the man falling through. The craziest thing about the clip that’s also very funny is that there was a guy in the shop standing there and didn’t even bother to help the man up. Although this situation seems hilarious and weird, let’s hope that the man who fell through is doing OK ut my goodness what the heck is going on out there?! Enjoy the video my friends and don’t forget to tilt your heads in confusion and awkwardness.

UPDATE: Well, that escalated quickly. As soon as I posted the video of the man who randomly fell through the roof of a golf shop which featured an interview Golf Channel’s Gary Williams did with Geoff Shackelford of Golf Digest, the awesome folks over at rightthisminute.com did an exclusive interview with the man who fell through the roof. Enjoy the video and thanks a bunch to Dennis O’Neill and Right This Minute for sending me the exclusive video. Enjoy y’all and keep it real GP Nation.
