I guess he is tired of paying for reduced rate tuition and medical care for the illegal aliens he can’t claim as dependents on his tax form..Well Phil so are the rest of us. Along with bad roads, idiot politicians, billion dollar trains to nowhere, criminals that have more rights than victims and a governor with Alzheimers…

It will be interesting to see how many of the left wing California entertainment/media complex who loudly supported the idea of the rich paying their ‘fair share’ do just what Mickelson is doing…except they won’t mention it to anyone but their lawyers and accountants.

…& for the most part, guys on the PGA are generally conservatives. Many come from well to do families, where golf was a way of life & at a time when golf was more or less a rich man’s game. Also, unlike many sports figures, golfer earn their money. Not with long term contracts, but with prize money.

Phil – just do like the other Californians that are in the rifle scope of liberals – pack your crap up and move here to Texas. We are growing, we have relatively low unemployment, NO personal income tax, and NO state corporate income tax.
Gosh – you’d think a conservative government really works or something like that. Just sayin’.
