Phil Mickelson hits moving ball at U.S. Open

  • Phil Mickelson makes the cut but not the way you would expect

Shinnecock Hills has not been kind to golfers this week at the 2018 U.S. Open, but Phil Mickelson suffered some self-inflicted damage Saturday.

Having taken on an original putt for bogey, the American jogged after the ball and proceeded to hit it again in the direction of the hole.

"That's the most out-of-character I've ever seen Phil Mickelson", said analyst Paul Azinger.

Mickelson would shoot an 11-over 81 in the third round that dropped him to 17 over for the week and in 65th place.

Lopetegui - who previously managed Porto - led his country to 28 points from a possible 30 as they cruised to top spot in their World Cup qualifying group.

However, because he hit a moving ball, Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty. I have had multiple times where I've wanted to do that.

Mickelson has finished runner-up at the US Open on six occasions. "I think he just snapped at how bad his speed was on that putt".

Whether it was the pressure of trying to complete the career grand slam or the pressure of Shinnecock's fast and undulating greens, Phil Mickelson went and lost his mind. He's never won a U.S. Open, but now he has etched himself a place in tournament lore - for all the wrong reasons. "I've had it with the USGA and the way they run their tournaments".

Another player who let things get to him was Kirk Triplett in 1998 at Olympic Club. I took the 2-shot penalty and moved on.

Division I Eliminates Permission-to-Contact Transfer Process
Nebraska head football coach Scott Frost voiced his support for the redshirt rule change several times in the spring. Historically, players who wish to transfer have been blocked from going to any school that's on a future schedule.

"I don't mean disrespect to anybody", Mickelson said after his round.

Strangely, the USGA deemed that Mickelson "played" the moving ball, rather than "moving or stopping" it, which could have brought disqualification into play. "As a result, he incurred a two stroke penalty for a breach of Rule 14-5".

Guess what: He was back the next year at Pebble Beach, where he pumped three shots into the Pacific Ocean on the famed 18th and hit another shot into someone's backyard. The ball was still moving when Mickelson swung at it.
