Jake Owen And Pro Golfer Phil Mickelson Reveal Heated Confrontation
Jake Owen recently had a run-in with pro golfer Phil Mickelson and it didn't go so well. The singer attended the wedding of his friend Jordan Spieth, another pro golfer, back in November and Owen got into a verbal argument with Mickelson over his pay-per-view match with Tiger Woods the previous day. Owen appeared on Barstool’s "ForePlay" podcast on Monday (April 1st) where he shared the story of having had a few cocktails and confronting Mickelson about wasting his time and money on the event. Owen said, "I was like, ‘Hey, Phil, you owe me f***ing $29.99 for wasting four hours of my life with the s***tiest golf I’ve ever seen.' I want my $29.99 back and apologize to me for some s***ty golf.’"
Owen said that Mickelson pulled out a stack of cash and handed him a $100 bill saying, "I won 90,000 of these yesterday. Take one of these and go f**k yourself."
In response to a video of Owen's story posted online by the podcast, Mickelson tweeted, "True story."
Jake released his new album, Greetings From . . . Jake Owen, last week.
