Word is, Phil Mickelson is mad as hell about rising tax rates, and heís not going to take it anymore. What follows is a brief portion of an interview Mickelson gave earlier today after carding a final-round 66 at the Palmer Course at PGA West in La Quinta Ė which I assure you, is not associated with the La Quinta next door to your local Dennyís Ė in which the golfer hinted that he is considering drastic career changes because of a combined tax rate nearing ď62, 63 percent:Ē
Q. When youíre asked about Strickerís semi-retirement, with the political situation the last couple months, blah, blah, blah, what did you mean by that? Do you find it an unsettling time in a way?
PHIL MICKELSON: Well, itís been an interesting offseason. And Iím going to have to make some drastic changes. Iím not going to jump the gun and do it right away, but I will be making some drastic changes.
