Mickelson says he’s cooperating in trading probe

DUBLIN, Oho – Golfer Phil Mickelson says he’s cooperating in an insider trading investigation involving him, investor Carl Icahn and Las Vegas gambler Billy Walters but maintains he did nothing wrong.

Mickelson’s manager confirmed Saturday that the investigation was the same outlined in reports in several newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal.

The newspapers report that federal investigators are looking into the trading patterns of Mickelson and Walters involving two stocks. The newspapers say the FBI and Securities and Exchange Commission are analyzing trades Mickelson and Walters made in Clorox about the time Icahn was attempting to take over the company.

The newspapers cited unidentified sources who had been briefed on the investigation. The Associated Press couldn’t immediately confirm details of the probe.

The Justice Department and SEC declined to comment.
