The PGA commissioner must've gotten a call from the Chicago people.

Tiger Woods said today that the reason he left California in the mid-Nineties was because the state's taxes were too high.

Woods was responding to Mickelson's original statement on CA taxes. He now lives in FL. Referring to his rival, 37-year-old Woods added: 'I enjoy Florida, but also I understand what he was, I think, trying to say.'

Anyone know the politics, if any, of Woods or Mickelson, especially the former?

It's a simple matter of a phone call from his agent/publicist.....a three-way call.... :laugh:....telling him that his endorsements account for {___} percent [majority of his income]....and that no matter what position he takes publicly, he alienates 50% of the country.      And about 5% of golfers.  LOL!!

Yeah, I know.  I am a marketing professor.  Still, I prefer to think the Chicago mob shut him up.  Until OPapaDoc started running his class war, no one would get castigated for complaining about taxes.  Now, half the population thinks Mickelson isn't paying his "fair share" and his share is over 60 percent!

Tiger Woods is right.  His financial advisor told him early on to get the hell out of California.  The move was probably worth $20 million a year in take-home pay.

Both Tiger Woods and Lebron James have supported Barack Obama with donations. Greg Oden (from Ohio State, now on the Portland Trailblazers) also endorsed Obama. King James has even campaigned for Obama.

Yet he moves to FL to avoid taxes.

Typical Lib supporting hyprocrite.
