Golfers in the Panama Papers

According to a report this morning in the Irish Times, three major champions—Retief Goosen, Padraig Harrington, and Ian Woosnam—are among the latest to be linked to the so-called Panama Papers which expose efforts by wealthy individuals to hide income through offshore bank accounts.

All three players were named in documents obtained from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which says its records were hacked. At the request of the players’ agent, IMG, the firm had set up the offshore accounts which are not illegal but can be linked to tax evasion. No charges have been filed, but the exposure of the Panama Papers has prompted several investigations worldwide.
