You might wanna use that mulligan soon, Phil!
A former sports handicapper recently plead guilty to operating an offshore gambling ring consisting of $2.75 million!
The only problem? That money reportedly belongs to professional golfer Phil Mickelson!
A little birdie tells us that 56-year-old Gregory Silveira could face up to 60 years in jail if he's convicted of running the gambling operation where he handled Phil's money.

Luckily for Phil, simply betting on a sporting event isn't illegal; the government only cracks down on whoever is actually offering the gambling service.
Hopefully Phil comes up with a fairway to smooth things out with the PGA before he faces any fines!
What do U think??
Is Phil going to get stuck in a sand trap, or is the whole story just bogey??
