Phil Mickelson admits his gambling addiction

The famous left-hander who has 57 career victories including 45 on the PGA Tour continued: “Money was never the problem since our financial security was never threatened, but I was so distracted that I didn’t I couldn’t be present with those I love and I caused a lot of harm. This lack of presence hurt me a lot.”

”If you cross the line of moderation and enter into addiction, I hope you don’t mistake your accomplices for friends like I did. […] I hope you have a strong, supportive partner who is willing to help you and get you through your worst times, like I did with Amy (his wife). […] Thanks to his love, support and commitment, I am back on track to being the person I want to be.”

Betting guru Billy Walters revealed Mickelson’s gambling addiction in his autobiography, saying the golfer who joined the high-paying LIV Tour had placed bets worth several hundred million dollars over the past 30 years.
