Phil Mickelson Admits Using Scandalized College Tutoring Firm, Denies Paying Bribes

Golf legend Phil Mickelson has admitted that his family used a company caught up in the college admissions/bribery scandal, but denied having paid any bribes to get his kids into college, TMZ reported.

On Tuesday the Department of Justice announced a mass indictment of 50 people for bribing a number of coaches and college administrators to get their children into a list of high-end colleges and universities.

One of those indicted was William “Rick” Singer who government prosecutors called the “mastermind” of the bribery scheme.

Prosecutors say Williams registered Key Worldwide Foundation as a charity in 2013 and used the outfit as a way to funnel bribe cash from parents to school officials.

DOJ officials say that Singer amassed $3.7 million in the charity’s coffers.
