Phil Mickelson has announced that he will not be joining the ownership group of the San Diego Padres. Phil is a San Diego native and a committed sports fan, and it had been rumored that he would take a stake in the baseball team. Phil had previously mentioned joining the group, saying that he was;

” Really excited” 

But he has had a rethink in the last six weeks and decided to step aside;

“I think to be involved with the Padres you have to be fully committed to the long-term. I’ve been born and raised here, but at this moment I’m not able to make that kind of long-term commitment to the city and to the team.”

I think this is a good decision, good for Phil Mickelson and his golf, and good for the golfing public who wish to see Phil playing at his very best. Ownership of a multi million dollar baseball club would have been too much of a distraction. I like Phil the golfer, and so do millions of fans.
