Phil Mickelson linked to money laundering scheme, according to report

Golfer Phil Mickelson, who last year was investigated for possible insider trading, has been linked peripherally to a recent money-laundering case connected to an offshore gambling operation.

About $2.75 million of Mickelson’s money was laundered by an offshore bookie over a three-year period, ESPN.com reported Monday. Mickelson has not been charged with a crime and is not under federal investigation, ESPN.com reported.

Last week, gambling handicapper Gregory Silveira pleaded guilty to laundering funds from a “gambling client” from February 2010 to February 2013. Sources told ESPN.com that the “gambling client” is Mickelson.

Last year, Mickelson was exonerated in an investigation into insider trading, although it’s unclear whether authorities are still investigating another such case. Mickelson said he had done nothing wrong and was cooperating with the investigation.

Mickelson, who has won five majors over three decades on the PGA Tour, has earned more than $77 million in prize money and also earns $45 million in endorsement deals each year.
