KPMG To Keep Phil Mickelson in Blue Hats and Heavy Taxation For at Least Two More Years

Hopefully he will learn to keep his tax bitching to himself this round:

KPMG LLP, the U.S. Audit, Tax and Advisory firm, today announced that it has renewed the sponsorship of 5-time Major golf champion Phil Mickelson. The global sponsorship, which originally began in 2008, will keep Mickelson in a KPMG branded hat on the PGA Tour through 2016. In addition, KPMG and Mickelson will expand their joint efforts to combat youth illiteracy through KPMG’s Family for Literacy and “Blue for Books” initiatives.

“Having grown to know Phil over the last six years, he’s just a tremendous person both on and off the course,” said John Veihmeyer, Chairman and CEO of KPMG LLP. “He shares in our commitment to putting books in the hands of America’s youth, which is the single biggest obstacle to literacy for children. We are so proud of the strides we have made together and we couldn’t be more pleased to continue this relationship.”

Phil's blue hat was unavailable for comment.
