Phil Mickelson is "making stuff up", according to a PGA Tour insider who spoke to Golf.Com on the condition of anonymity.
Mickelson's comments last week sent shockwaves through the golf world. He claims there is more to come.
"I don't know where things are headed, but I know I will be criticized," Mickelson told Golf Digest.
"The media rights are but a small fraction of everything else. And it is the Tour's obnoxious greed that has really opened the door for opportunities elsewhere."
The PGA Tour have not officially responded, though it is likely his comments have caught their attention.
His fellow players have been asked about what he has said. Viktor Hovland didn't want to get involved, neither did Jon Rahm.
Although Rahm did go on to say that while he still respects and supports Mickelson as a friend he did not agree with everything he said.
Brooks Koepka, on the other hand, posted a rather interesting comment on Instagram about Mickelson.
Then he shut down questions about it this week ahead of the WM Phoenix Open. "I said what I said," Koepka told the media.
Now the PGA Tour appear to have responded.
That insider told Golf: "I've never seen anybody be really interested in how we generate the money. There's some conversation about it now because, you know, Phil's making stuff up that's just not true. But in general, they're happy that there's a lot of money that comes from it."
