Spokesman T.R. Reinman says Mickelson told friends of his decision before a meeting at Torrey Pines Golf Course on Tuesday night to discuss renovation of the North Course.

Reinman says Mickelson feels the O'Malley and Seidler families, which bought the Padres last summer, along with local businessman Ron Fowler, have the depth of commitment the city needs. Reinman says Mickelson feels he can't match that level of commitment.

Sarah Farnsworth, the Padres' vice president of public affairs, confirms that Mickelson will not be part of the ownership group.
Mickelson said in mid-October that it looked promising that he'd be involved.
