Phil Mickelson has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few weeks. The veteran golfer has faced backlash from other members of the fraternity for voting in favor of the proposed Super League with Saudi Arabia’s cash.

Mickelson on Tuesday took to his Twitter and issued a lengthy apology that never mentioned the PGA Tour and challenged comments published in the story as “no content” and “no contextual”. The major six-time champion also announced his retirement from golf and spoke to his corporate sponsors in the release.

“I have incredible partners and these relationships mean more to me than a contract,” he say. “The last thing I wanted to do was compromise with them or their business in any way, and I gave them all the option to pause or end the relationship because I understand that could be necessary in the present situation. “

Shortly after the Mickelson controversy led to retaliation, one of the top consulting firms KPMG, once his longtime sponsor, decided to end the partnership. Meanwhile, Callaway Golf, which has been sponsoring Phil since 2004, has taken a slightly softer approach.

Callaway does not accept Phil Mickelson’s comments and we are disappointed with his word choice – they do not reflect our values ​​or what we stand for as a company.,” the company said in a statement. “Phil has since apologized and we know he regrets the way he handled recent events. We recognize his desire to leave the game for a while and respect that decision. At this point, we have agreed to pause the partnership and will reassess our ongoing relationship at a later date.”
