Before getting into the details of Phil and Pat feud, let’s first learn about them. 

Philip Alfred Mickelson is a golfer who is currently affiliated with the LIV Golf League. On the PGA Tour, he has triumphed in 45 competitions, including six major championships. At 50 years, 11 months, and 7 days old, Mickelson won the oldest major championship in history.

Since his dominant hand is his left, he has been nicknamed “Lefty.”

You’re probably not surprised by this headline, as this is not the first time these two have managed to rile up the internet. 

This is not a new subject, but somehow it managed to gain light after it was mentioned in the book “Phil: The Rip Roaring and Unauthorized Biography of Golf’s Most Colorful Superstar”  by Alan Shipend.

According to the book, Mickelson and Perez’s feud started when Mickelson showed a photo to Perez’s wife that she found “offensive.” The incident took place when Mickelson, Perez, and Ashley were dining together at Liberty National Golf Club in 2015.

As the story goes, as Pat was leaving the table to use the restroom, Mickelson allegedly took out his phone and showed her an offensive photograph of himself.

However, in accounts of Perez, he hasn’t revealed anything to the public except for the fact that he “Hates” Mickelson. 

Perez has already told the book writer Alan that it was a matter between the two golfing stars, and they have already “Handled” the matter.

Perez is married to the gorgeous Ashley Perez, who happens to be an innovative engineer and a designer. 

Reports suggest that the pair were introduced to each other at the dinner of a mutual friend.  At that time, she was taken aback by Pat’s angry outbursts on the golf course.

The pair tied the wedding knot on New Year’s Eve of 2015. The pair is blessed with two lovely children, Piper Perez, and Paxton Perez.

Ashley recently made headlines when she slammed Tiger Woods when he backed out of the Hero World Challenge owing to his ongoing recovery from a car accident.

She also made big headlines in September 2022 when she threw shade at a group that included Patrick Cantlay, his fiancee Nikki Guidish, and Xander and Maya Schauffele.

Nikki had shared photos from a trip to Napa Valley with Xander Schauffele and his wife, Maya. We would love to share all these posts but turns out Ashley has her Instagram private.
