McCarron accuses Mickelson of 'cheating'

McCarron accuses Mickelson of 'cheating'

Scott McCarron is accusing Phil Mickelson of "cheating" for using Ping wedges that were made 20 years ago with square grooves that the U.S. Golf Association now outlaws for professional golf.
The Ping-Eye 2 wedges remain legal because of a lawsuit Ping filed against the USGA over square grooves that was settled in 1990. Under the settlement, any Ping wedge made before April 1, 1990, remains approved under the Rules of Golf.
McCarron says Mickelson and others using the Ping wedges are violating the spirit of the law. He used "cheating" in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, considered a vicious charge in a sport that boasts of its integrity.
Mickelson says the USGA's new groove regulation is "ridiculous" and believes McCarron was attacking the rule, not him.
