Golfer Phil Mickelson Interested in Padres Ownership Group?

This past week, while the San Diego Padres were taking batting practice at Citi Field in New York, Kevin Towers mentioned that pro golfer, and native San Diegan, Phil Mickeson was interested in buying into the Padres' new ownership group, a group that includes former Cowboys' quarterback Troy Aikman.

When Mickelson was reached for comment he said, "I was approached by the new ownership group several times. I took a look at it and thought it could be a great deal for someone. But at this point I'm just not interested in being a part of any sports franchise."

Whether or not there's any truth to Mickelson's interest, I wouldn't be surprised to actually see another story about his interest after this season, especially if the Padres finish a whole lot better than they did in 2008.

Hey Tiger, we have room for you too ya know! Tiger and Phil buying into the same franchise, I can't imagine that would go over real well. They already don't like each other, imagine them talking about the future of the Padres while they're on the 18th tee.
