Mickelson Tied To Illegal Gambling Case

Mickelson Tied To Illegal Gambling Case

Illegal gambling is actually not something new when it comes to sports, over the years there have been numerous cases with regards to illegal gambling that have emerged and while some were successful in fully dealing with those involved some were not. That said, another high profile “Illegal gambling operation” that has been the talk of town for quite some time now is threatening  the image of one of golf’s brightest star Phil Mickelson.

According to reports by ESPN’s Outside The Lines, Mickelson had wired a total of 3 million dollars to one of the people who was part of the illegal gambling ring. Although Mickelson is yet to be charged with regards to the whole issue, the report states that he was highly active in the whole “illegal gambling operation” with most of his funds being transferred to an individual who was later identified to be Greg Silveira. For those who are not familiar with Greg Silveira, he is basically one of the people who took part in the whole “illegal gambling operation”.    

Greg Silveira has since pleaded guilty to 3 counts of money laundering. All this charges involved the transfer of money from one of his clients between the period of “February 2010 to February 2013.”  

According to reports, the client in question is non-other than Phil Mickelson despite the fact that he was not officially named in court. The report, citing sources close to the whole matter stated that Greg was close to naming Mickelson as his client his initial plea agreement.

As at now there hasn’t been any word coming from Mickelson’s camp regarding the whole report.
