    Tiger and lots of other pro golfers have quietly moved to state-income-tax free Florida and Nevada.

      why Mickelson remained in California so long if he felt that his taxes were burdensone.  I mean, the state's top income-tax rate was 10.3% even before the recent increase...he could have saved himself a ton by moving to Texas or Florida years ago if money was such a concern.  Having said that, I can understand how even a multi-gazillionaire like Phil wouldn't be happy with his state taxes going up $1 mil or so overnight--it's just dumbfounding that he felt the need to b*tch about it publicly.

      I don't care if they move. I wouldn't care if mikelson moved either.

      Just don't be an ass about it. Though I have to give the guy some grudging respect for at least saying why most of the others likely move.
