Golf Australia Express : GA Express 292 US Open wrap
THE MOMENT WATCH: PHIL MICKELSON CHASE HIS ERRANT PUTT Mickelson’s major meltdown Struggling in the difficult conditions on Saturday at Shinnecock Hills, Phil Mickelson finally had enough as he watched his putt accelerate past the hole on the 13th green and threaten to head off the front edge. The five-time major winner set off after his moving ball and hit it back towards the hole, in what appeared to be a complete brain explosion (on his 48th birthday no less). Mickelson, however, claimed he knew exactly what he was doing, with many suggesting he was sending a message to the USGA about the course setup. “At that time I just didn't feel like going back and forth and hitting the same shot over,” Mickelson said. “I took the two-shot penalty and moved on. It's my understanding of the rules. I've had multiple times where I've wanted to do that, I just finally did it.” And while ‘Lefty’ claimed to simply be using the rules in his favour and intended no disrespect, many on social media suggested the breach of etiquette called for his disqualification, or for Mickelson to withdraw. That was something Mickelson clearly did not agree with, signing for a one under final round that included another cheeky moment at the par-4. “He made a good par save on 13, and it looked like he won the Masters,” playing partner Rickie Fowler said.
