Pat Perez blasted another tour pro Phil Mickelson for apologizing for his earlier comments on the PGA Tour. The six-time major champion had voted for the proposed Saudi Arabia-backed Super Golf League, drawing massive criticism from the golf community.
During a recent interaction with the former PGA Tour pro Colt Knost and Drew Stolz On GOLF’s Subpar podcast, Perez looked candid, as is his nature.
“His apology was such crap that he thought he was trying to make it better for the players.” Perez told hosts Knost and Stoltz. “He was there for a reason. If someone thinks they weren’t there for their own pocket, and only for their pocket, that’s pretty darn high. You’re fucking crazy.
“He was there for himself. I can’t explain why he went two different ways and basically buried himself in both.”
“I am deeply sorry for my choice of words” – Mickelson
Phil previously announced a break from golf after a lengthy apology for “reckless” comments, saying he “sincerely regrets” some of the words he used when previously discussing the issue in the media.
“They’re creepy moms to deal with,” Mickelson told the writer while making serious allegations against the tour. “We know they killed [Washington Post columnist and U.S. resident Jamal] Khashoggi and have a terrible human rights record. They execute people there because they are gay.
Mickelson, 51, who is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, found himself in hot water after these comments were directed at the author Alan Schiffnuckwhose unauthorized biography of Mickelson is out in May.
“I used words I sincerely regret‘ Mickelson wrote. “It was reckless, I offended people, and I’m deeply sorry for my choice of words.”
