Phil Mickelson just joined Tiger Woods in golf’s most exclusive club

Published

on

With the sale of six Arizona golf courses, Phil Mickelson is officially a billionaire.

The reigning PGA Championship winner has decided to sell three private courses (The Rim Golf Club, The Golf Club at Chaparral Pines, and the Stone Canyon Club, which many will remember from Capital One’s The Match), and the three public courses (Ocotillo Golf Club, Palm Valley Golf Club, and McDowell Mountain Golf Club) to Arcis Golf, a premier lifestyle golf company.

Prior to the sale, Forbes estimated Mickelson’s career earnings off the course at $800 million, but this newest deal will officially put him over the $1 billion threshold.

The six-time major champion now joins Tiger Woods as the only other active professional golfer to boast a net worth of over $1 billion dollars.

Mickelson still has some work to do to catch his long-time rival, as Woods is estimated by Forbes to have obtained over $1.5 billion from endorsements, appearances, and his golf course design company.

Despite his business success, the 45-time PGA Tour winner is still completely committed to competing at the highest level. Mickelson returns to action next week at the Northern Trust, the first leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

    Nice clickbait headline that is actually less interesting than the real story.

    Career compensation is not the same as net worth. Shoeshine boys talking about money. Ring the bell.

      what an uninformed comment this is. I dont care about Mickelson or his money, but all the article said was that he made an estimated 800m off the course. That doesnt mean that his net worth isnt over 1b. You have no idea what he sold the six courses for. This guy has 100ms invested and you think you know better about his net worth? Odd

Brutal 360-degree lip out leads to 1-stroke penalty at CJ Cup

Published

on

Seonghyeon Kim was making only his second start on Tour at the weekend and suffered a brutal break on his 72nd hole that cost the South Korean almost $20k.

Faced with a 3′ 4″ birdie putt on 18, Kim saw his ball lip out in brutal fashion in front of a stunned crowd, with one spectator screaming, “Did you see that?”.

As an equally shocked Kim assessed what he had just witnessed, the Korean patiently waited until his ball dramatically fell into the cup. “Don’t you love this game, Steve Sands?” said Trevor Immelman over a cheering crowd, but the incident was about to take a grim turn.

Per rule 13.3a, on a putt overhanging the hole, “the player is allowed a reasonable time to reach the hole and 10 more seconds to wait to see whether the ball will fall into the hole.”

As you can see from the video, Kim took far longer than 10 seconds, and therefore was assessed a 1-stroke penalty turning his birdie into a par.

The penalty saw Kim finish T32 when if his putt had dropped within the 10-second allocation, he’d have secured a top-25 spot and with it an extra payday of approximately just over $17k.
