One of Brian’s Favorite Quotes
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
(Attributed Incorrectly to James Madison)
Did Tiger Woods And Phil Mickelson Receive $2.5 Million In Illegal Appearance Fees This Weekend?
Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson missed a cut this weekend during a Greenbrier Classic. However, if a rumors are true, both golfers still went home with seven-figure checks only for display up, something that is bootleg on a PGA Tour.
According to Steve Eiling of CBSSports.com, mixed sources told him that Tiger perceived a $1.5 million coming fee, and Mickelson perceived $1.0 million to play in a PGA event.
Eiling explains that tournaments can get around this order by profitable a players for “participating in a corporate clinic, or appearing during a cocktail party,” or something similar. And once a actor is paid for that, it is approaching that they will *cough, cough* also play in a tournament.
And while some don’t have a problem with a pay-for-play, and wish a use done legal, others fear that it will destroy a smaller tournaments that can't means to compensate large stars to uncover up.
It’s tough to suppose a PGA Tour will be means to stop a payments. So it competence be time to make a use legal so that it is easier to control.
