Phil Mickelson maintains innocence after third round at Memorial
Phil Mickelson met with the media after a third-round 72 at Muirfield Village.
Phil Mickelson is the monster story at the Memorial Tournament this week and not for what he's doing on the course.
A gaggle of reporters gathered around Lefty to ask him about the FBI investigation under way regarding some alleged insider trading Mickelson participated in.
Geoff Shackelford has a really good look for Golf Digest at how Mickelson's post-round press conference went down.
"I have done absolutely nothing wrong," Mickelson said. "And that's why I've been fully cooperating with the FBI agents, and I'm happy to do so in the future, too, until this gets resolved. But for right now and hopefully it will be soon but for right now I can't really talk much about it."
This is essentially the same thing Mickelson said in a statement really early on Saturday morning. He was also asked if he considered withdrawing.
"No, of course not," Mickelson said.
This thing is far from over but Mickelson is adamant about his innocence. He even noted that he's not letting the investigation be a distraction.
"And it's not going to change the way I carry myself. Honestly, I've done nothing wrong. I'm not going to walk around any other way."
Mickelson shot a 72 on Saturday to stay at 2 under and is 10 shots back of Bubba Watson heading into the final round at Muirfield Village.
