Looks like pro golfing legend Phil Mickelson is trying to get out ahead of news that he also used the services of the man at the center of the college bribery scandal breaking across higher education this week.

BUT… Mickelson claims he didn’t bribe anyone to get his kids into college.

On Thursday, Mickelson admitted that his family used the “charity” caught up in the college admissions/bribery scandal but denied having paid any bribes to get his kids into college, TMZ reported.

One of those indicted was William “Rick” Singer who government prosecutors called the “mastermind” of the bribery scheme. Prosecutors say Williams registered Key Worldwide Foundation as a charity in 2013 and used the outfit as a way to funnel bribe cash from parents to school officials. DOJ officials say that Singer amassed $3.7 million in the charity’s coffers.

Now, Mickelson says that his family worked with Singer’s group to help get his children placed in the best colleges.

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

Mickelson has a 19-year-old daughter who now attends Brown University. He also has a 17-year-old daughter and a 15-year-old son.

MLB Fans on Twitter Slam New Trend of ‘Flopping’ Baserunners

Shameful and unsportsmanlike.

Published

There is nothing more purely infuriating in the world of sports than watching professional athlete, often being paid an exorbitant sum to play a children’s game, decide to play the referees and not the game itself. We see this fairly often in soccer, as players attempt to draw a foul by exaggerating the contact made with another player, hoping to goad an official into handing over a free kick or some other advantage. This “flopping” has migrated to the NBA as well, with LeBron James standing accused of near-constant exaggeration. But baseball?  Oh, you had better believe that this unsportsmanlike charade has begun to make an appearance in America’s national pastime…and fans are not happy about it. https://twitter.com/mlberrors/status/1394025677880496135?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394025677880496135%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/mlberrors/status/1394025677880496135?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394025677880496135%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/tipping_pitches/status/1394024367785455616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394024367785455616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F https://twitter.com/newballpark/status/1394021344140881920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1394021344140881920%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fsports%2F2021%2F05%2F16%2Fwatch-mlb-players-are-flopping-like-lebron-james-its-ugly%2F Some fans were also concerned that the umpires and officials were unable to employ video review for the play, thanks to the way in which the rules surrounding the use of that technology were written.

‘Transgender’ Weightlifter Set to Destroy Natural-Born Women at Tokyo Olympics

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has foolishly agreed to allow a man claiming to be a woman to enter the weightlifting competition as a woman, and now that man is set to utterly destroy every natural-born female in the games. New Zealander Laurel Hubbard, 43, was born a man, but is now claiming to be a female weightlifter. And so far, every single competition he’s entered as a woman, he has made the natural-born female contestants look like 90-pound weaklings. And now that Hubbard has been allowed to join the New Zealand team, he is set to destroy every natural-born female contestant who will compete in Tokyo. Hubbard fell to sixth in 2019 after suffering an injury, but he is now fit and ready to go. Hubbard competed as a man for years in New Zealand, but seven years ago began transitioning to a female. Hubbard is now set to compete in the women’s 87-plus kg division in the Australian Open in Canberra on Sunday, NBC reports. The New Zealander won last month’s World Cup in Rome, lifting 270kg to beat Ukraine’s Anastasiia Lysenko by 4kg. Olympics candidates need to complete six events or more in the 18 months before the Olympic tryouts to qualify. Hubbard has qualified to compete as a woman per the newest rules put in place by the International Weightlifting Federation’s guidelines as well as the International Olympic Committee’s rules. Natural-born men who wish to compete as a woman must have testosterone levels are below ten nanomoles per liter for at least a year before their first competition, the IOC says. The IOC’s rules are not without controversy, though. The IOC recently shelved attempts to change its rules, but pulled back when the committee’s own scientists could not agree on standards. Hubbard has been tearing through…
