Phil Mickelson

FILE – In this Feb. 19, 2012 file photo, Phil Mickelson plays during the final round of the Northern Trust Open golf tournament at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles. Mickelson says he should have kept his opinions on taxes to himself. Mickelson had suggested “drastic changes” were in store for him _ perhaps moving from his native California _ because of changes in federal and state taxes that he says tap into more than 60 percent of his income.
