Barclays Capital has a full page ad on the back of the Wall Street Journal today-sorry, I can't find it online. The photo is of Masters winner Phil Mickelson. He is tenderly kissing the top of the head of his very pretty, blonde wife (who was recently treated for breast cancer). The copy reads in part, "Congratulations to Phil MIckelson and his family on his victory ... Phil demonstrates why he is a great ambassador and role model for the game of golf. He personifies the game's values of integrity, focus, and precision, which are at the core of how we at Barclays are committed to earning success every day for our clients." I bet Barclays is thrilled it didn’t have to put together a string of troubled quotes from Mickelson’s father.
