Welcome to the site.
Why would you ever present someone you don’t know as an example for your kids?
The biggest influence on values comes from what the kids see from their parents.
The person closest in age to being a "kid" who looks to Phil as a role model probably has a mortgage, a 2 year lease on a Hyundai, and $50,000 in student loan debt. No disrespect to Mr. Mickelson, but he's no spring chicken, is he? I remember being a teenager and watching him sitting next to Woosnam as the highest placed amateur the year Woosie won the Masters, and that's a helluva long time ago.
This isn't Rory or Rickie we're (or rather you're) talking about. It's a man who's a few years out from the Champion's Tour...
Listen here, Phil is great to kids, signs autographs for hours on end after every round. Sure he gambles and takes risks, and this whole insider trading issue is very conserning. But lets here the facts first and what is the result of the investigation first, before you start stating ludicrous things in the stupid thread you created.
Tiger doesn't like signing autographs, he bangs hookers in Vegas. Tiger is VERY VERY VERY cheap tightwade. He doesn't tip, if he does it very small amount at restaurants. After he finishes his meals, he walks away from the table, even though though people at the table are not done, he will walk out. Ya great role model Tiger is.
Virtually every pro gambles when they play. To think otherwise is naive. They always have a wager going during the practice rounds, and sometimes they have side bets going during the tournament rounds. Professional golf was founded by players gambling. Time to get off your high horse.
Right. But cheating on your wife and making your kids (and other family members) go through the embarrassment is good and a good example for others to follow?
So, one has to be under investigation to be really bad...is that your threshold?
