Golfer Phil Mickelson is another wealthy athlete who used Rick Singer’s company to help navigate the college admissions process.  The company is being investigated for helping the children of the wealthy illegally get into colleges .

Mickelson, like fellow high profile star athlete Joe Montana, deny using the company to gain entry illegally for his children.

Via TMZ Sports:

Singer ran a college prep business servicing tons of families. Mickelson says his business dealings with Singer’s company were strictly above board.

“Our family, along with thousands of others, used Rick Singer’s company to guide us through the college admission process,” Phil says.

“We are shocked by the revelations of these events. Obviously, we were not part of this fraud, our kids would disown us if we ever tried to interfere.”

This isn’t your boy Phil’s first brush with scandal.  He knows what he’s doing by now and you can bet, if there was some shady stuff going down, he can’t be tied to it.
