Mickelson not taking "cheating" accusation lightly

Mickelson not taking "cheating" accusation lightly

Phil Mickelson is upset about being "publicly slandered" with accusations of cheating. He is suggesting that unless the U.S. PGA Tour steps in, he might let others handle it.
Mickelson did not mention Scott McCarron by name in his interviews on Saturday at the Farmers Insurance Open. It was McCarron who was quoted in The San Francisco Chronicle as saying about Mickelson using the Ping-Eye 2 wedge, "It's cheating, and I'm appalled Phil has put it in play."
Mickelson says he expects the Ping wedges with square grooves, which are approved because of a legal settlement, to be a topic of discussion. But he says when it leads to a player being slandered, the tour needs to step in _ "or someone else."
Asked if he was considering a lawsuit, Mickelson declined to get into specifics.
