Phil Mickelson Loses His Mind On U.S. Open Putting Green

The surprising thing about all of this is that Phil Mickelson has admitted that he didn't lose the plot on the 13th hole when he did this at the US Open at Shinnecock Hills. I have had multiple times where I've wanted to do that.

Phil Mickelson's 48th birthday is going to be a memorable one for all the wrong reasons.

By hitting a moving ball, he breached rule 14-5, and was thus given a two-stroke penalty, taking a 10 on the hole.

With the two-shot penalty, he was given a sextuple-bogey 10 that was the highest score on any hole at this US Open, according to the USGA.

On the Fox broadcast, David Fay, the top man at the USGA before retiring in 2010, said that after hearing Mickelson's remarks after the round, Fay would take a different view than the USGA committee that assessed the two-shot penalty. "I just finally did".

It conjured up memories of John Daly hitting a moving ball that rolled off the green during the fourth round of the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst.

Phil Mickelson landed in the center of a firestorm Saturday afternoon after he stabbed at his ball as it was slowly trickling beyond the 13th hole. After three more pars following the meltdown, he bogeyed 17, then parred 18.

Mickelson hit his putt while it was still moving and was hit with a two-stoke penalty.

Rather than wait to see where the ball might end up, Mickelson literally ran after the ball and hit it again as it was still moving.

He himself apologised, insisting that he had "meant no disrespect". He missed that putt as well and then tapped in for a 10 with the penalty he had to take, putting him at 10-over for the day and in a position where he's going to have some explaining to do.

History suggests the 33-year-old is an odds-on favourite to become only the second player after Tiger Woods to win while ranked world number one, with five of the previous six players to hold a halfway lead of four shots or more going on to win.
