Golf star Phil Mickelson says he regrets publicly commenting that he may have to leave California over high taxes, saying he should not have spoken out on such a personal topic.

In a statement to Fox News late Monday, Mickelson apologized to anyone he may have “upset or insulted” with the comments that his high tax bracket was causing him to consider “drastic changes” in his life, including possibly moving his family out of state and even retiring from the game of golf.

“Finances and taxes are a personal matter and I should not have made my opinions on them public,” Mickelson said.

Mickelson also said he is currently working on learning about the new tax laws that have raised his rate, and is relying on the advice of experts to make decisions for the future.
