Phil Mickelson shares gambling addiction story to warn bettors during football season: ‘I was so distracted’

Football season is in full swing, and LIV Golf star Phil Mickelson wants to make sure all fans are responsibly enjoying this time of year. 

For many fans, wagering on football, whether it’s through sportsbooks or fantasy leagues, is very common. Mickelson isn’t knocking those who want to enjoy the games with some bets, but he cautions those who may be taking it a step too far. 

Mickelson is a recovering gambling addict, and he shared a long, impactful post on X, formerly Twitter, urging bettors to be smart this football season. 

If you or somebody you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER, which is the National Problem Gambling Helpline Network.
