The 19th Hole Golf Show: Why Phil Mickelson avoided jail and Muirfield is in Open purgatory


Phil Mickelson can thank a pair of 2014 cases for why he isn't in handcuffs right now, charged with insider trading and securities fraud. We explain that precedent and how Mickelson was a pawn of the feds.

New GNN team member Kevin Power joins the show to talk about Muirfield's decision to remain an all-male club, talking about the implications for them, the Open Championship, the R&A, the Scottish economy and more. We also delve into Rory McIlroy's issue activism and the potential influence he could have on the game and his peers.
