As a result of Phil Mickelson’s disappointing behavior, Pat Perez is unable to forgive him. “When it comes to Phil, I have a different hate for Phil than most people. People won’t know the story, I’m not going to go into the story again, but Phil crossed the line with me that is just uncrossable and unforgivable.
He knows that he screwed up. He apologised for the accident, but I cannot forgive him for it because I’ve known Phil for a long, long time. I’ve known the guy forever. And the fact that when he made this action , not only was it – he had intentions of doing it.
He was already – he knew it was going to happen before it happened and when he did it – I was hurt for one. I was like ‘how can this guy do this?’ I didn’t really go into it on Colt’s thing ( Colt Knost), but I told Colt and said, ‘You’ve cut out all the reasons of why I don’t like Phil’ – the other side of the coin is that everyone thought that Phil was greedy.
No, he wasn’t greedy.” – Perez said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com
Pat Perez on PGA Tour: Phil is 100% correct
As a result, Perez decided to support Mickelson, who is known to be a “tough” individual when it comes to talking about the PGA Tour.
It is not uncommon for LIV Golfers to feel angry at the PGA Tour leaders, as they are often called out by them.
“He (Phil) is 100% correct in the fact that the way the Tour is the way they are. They are for themselves; they are not for the players.
They are not for growing anybody else except their own pockets.” The conflict between the two parties, which must find a common language, will continue for a long time. Both sides want supremacy in the golf scene, and nobody wants to give up at this moment.
