Mickelson sorry for public airing of taxes

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Phil Mickelson is relying on some self-deprecating humor and his worst moment in golf to stop the chatter about his taxes.

Mickelson caused a sensation earlier this week by saying new federal and state tax rates kept him from being part of the San Diego Padres' new ownership group and might force him to move away from his native California.

He has referred to the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot, when he hit a drive way left that led to double bogey and cost him a major title. He says this time he was ``way right,'' referring to his position on taxes, and that he should not have spoken publicly about his financial views.

Mickelson says it was insensitive to those who are struggling to find a job.
