Phil Mickelson penalized after hitting moving ball

  • Phil Mickelson looking at his shot as it flies through the air

"It was amusing because I didn't think he hit that bad a chip shot from behind the green in the first place". I took the two-shot penalty and moved on.

There were calls for Mickelson to be disqualified but his punishment stopped at the two-stroke penalty.

While many don't care for the USGA and their setups, I enjoy them. Knowing the rules is never a bad thing.

"I think you've got to because it was outrageous what they did to the course".

Rose described conditions as very hard and added: "The course was just a battle".

"I laughed, I thought it was really amusing", Spieth said, via Golf.com.

Fellow Englishman Ian Poulter slipped down into a tie for 10th at seven over after a 76.

"We're not on the edge", two-time major victor Zach Johnson told Sky Sports.

But while most of the players were talking about pin positions that were unfair in light of the speed of the greens on another dry, breezy Saturday afternoon, the talk among those who were watching the tournament at the end of the day was all about fan-favorite Phil Mickelson's freakish reaction to a missed putt on the 13th hole-and whether the golfer should have been disqualified from the tournament for having stopped his ball from rolling off the green on the 13th hole.

Amy Mickelson said her husband offered to quit the US Open following his two-shot penalty in the third round of Saturday's tournament.

After initially showing no remorse for purposely putting a moving ball at the U.S. Open, Phil Mickelson texted reporters to express remorse for his actions.

Taliban vows to resume fighting in Afghanistan
The government-appointed High Peace Council (HPC) said it had been in direct contact with Taliban leaders since the truce began. Kabul city police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said some unarmed Taliban had entered the Afghan capital Saturday.


Mickelson also said he did it to gain a competitive advantage, as his ball was rolling off the green behind a bunker. I would still be out there potentially.

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

"I don't see how", he said. "He played a moving ball".

Phil Mickelson came to this US Open looking to end his curse at the championship and so join the immortals who have completed the career grand slam.

Some say, "It's just Phil being Phil". "I tried to hit it as close as I could on the next one, and you take the two shots and move on".

Playing with England golfer Andrew Johnston - who later tweeted that the controversy did not affect his game after carding an 12-over 82 - Mickelson was seen laughing on the broadcast.

"Heck, even before I started working there that was the image of the Open".

"It got too tough in some areas". If we got a mulligan, we would have slowed the greens down this afternoon. "A pity they managed to destroy a handsome golf course".

Think about it. One of the greatest players in the world literally running after a putt moving down a hill and swinging his putter like a miniature hockey stick to knock it back toward the hole.

"It was not a fair test of golf", tweeted Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello, after a 76. "A pity they manage to destroy a attractive golf course", added the Spaniard on Twitter. Had he played the ball conventionally, he risked a score higher than the 10 he ended up getting on the par 4 hole. Some of the putts were impossible.

He then two-putted for 10, with the penalty. You want to prevent that from happening again, golf? "It's a stern test". "How can this team keep doing this without consequences". As for the USGA and the US Open, F Scott Fitzgerald might have had them in mind when he closed The Great Gatsby with the line: 'And so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.'. Justin Rose is one shot back with Henrik Stenson a further shot adrift.
