Phil Mickelson's HUGE claim about PGA Tour: "That day will be later this year"

LIV Golf's Phil Mickelson raises eyebrows in response to 'PGA Tour whistleblower' tweet...

Phil Mickelson's HUGE claim about PGA Tour:

LIV Golf's Phil Mickelson has revealed new information will be "brought to light later this year" about past conduct of the PGA Tour

Mickelson, who is competing in this week's LIV Golf-backed Saudi International on the Asian Tour, responded to a tweet posted by Scottish author Mark Eglinton. 

"One of these days people will realise that @PhilMickelson is the PGA Tour whistleblower we all needed," tweeted Mark. 

"The tour is whiter than white? LOL 

"Do your research into how their 'lobbyists' (eyes emoji) arm wrestled Congress to approve a tax bill in 2004..."

Mickelson replied: "That day will be later this year when all of it is brought to light and it won’t have to be from me."

Phil Mickelson's HUGE claim about PGA Tour:

The six-time major champion last year took a four-month break from the sport after his comments about working with the Saudis to force the PGA Tour into change went public. 

Author and journalist Alan Shipnuck was the man responsible for publishing Mickelson's comments earlier last year, shortly before the emergence of a new Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series that is now known as the LIV Golf League as of 2023. 

Mickelson joined LIV Golf ahead of its first tournament in June last year, and it is believed he accepted a signing-on fee in the region of $200 million.

Here's what Mickelson really messaged Shipnuck. 

It emerged last February that Lefty had called the Saudis 'scary motherf***ers', and he would address those comments later in the year. 

Mickelson claimed his comments were "off the record" but Shipnuck denies such talk. 

Phil Mickelson's HUGE claim about PGA Tour:

Fast forward to today and LIV Golf is heading into its second year on Tour, while the PGA Tour has acted with boosting its prize money and Player Impact Program with a series of 13 'Elevated Events' in many ways to ensure their best players do not jump ship. 

PGA Tour players who are part of the program must compete in 12 of the 13 tournaments during the season. 

Mickelson believes all players on the PGA Tour should now be "appreciative of what LIV Golf is doing" as a result of the inflated purses now on offer. 

A new PGA Tour docu-series will be going live on Netflix in two weeks time, which will likely reveal a bit more as to what really went on behind the scenes following the emergence of LIV Golf in 2022. 

Mickelson initially led the line for a player breakaway on the PGA Tour, and many of his peers joined none bigger than Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Reed and Cameron Smith

The latter yesterday spoke about his number one regret since joining the Saudi-bankrolled LIV Golf League. 

Mickelson shocked golf fans earlier this week with his rapid transformation.

He also gave some inside information on what will likely happen with the Official World Golf Rankings (OWGR). 

Who knows exactly what Mickelson means about the PGA Tour when he tweets "that day will be later this year", but we sure cannot wait to find out.
