Phil Mickelson loses the plot at US Open after putt goes wrong

Phil Mickelson took a freaky 2-stroke penalty at the U.S. Open when he intentionally putted a ball that was still rolling on the green.

Australian major victor Elkington joined a chorus of former players and fans calling for five-time major victor Mickelson to be disqualified from the Shinnecock Hills event in NY after his freaky meltdown. It looked like the ball was going to fly off the green when Mickelson hit the ball back towards the hole while it was still moving - which is illegal.

"Look, I don't mean disrespect to anybody", he said. I took the 2-shot penalty and moved on.

After a birdie at the fourth, Mickelson bogeyed five of his next seven holes to fall to 10-over for the tournament, then carded a disastrous 10 at the par-4 13th hole. It's my understanding of the rules. I have had multiple times where I've wanted to do that. I think you see it in different sports people do these wacky things.

He was immediately issued with a two shot penalty for his actions and he's surely longing for the clubhouse now. It's a risk. I could have maybe hit a shot and somehow made the putt.

Phil Mickelson has sparked controversy at the US Open by striking a moving ball in a breach of golfing etiquette, with Australian Steve Elkington leading the criticism. This was his way to bend the rules and take a shot at the USGA at the same time for making the green so hard.

The five-time major victor finished his round 11-over for the day in 65 position.

It has also been reported that cross-play will be available too, although it will only be with some platforms. Nintendo announced the news at E3 2018 , the annual video game industry trade show, in Los Angeles.

I'm going out on a limb here, but I predict that Mickelson won't win the tournament.

John Daly did it in the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst, so it's not like it's never happened before. "He just laughed at me, he had no words to say". It's been incredible. Singing happy birthdays, wishing happy birthdays.

World number one Johnson, who had led by four overnight, shot a 77.

Fox analyst Paul Azinger speculated that Mickelson just snapped after seeing how bad his putt was.

And Mickelson should know there's no place for that kind of behavior on any golf course, much less in the national championship.

It's the type of thing you'd see a stroppy youngster perform, frustrated at their putt not going into the hole.

"Usually we sell everything well in advance, but NY is a very savvy ticket market and we've seen a lot of sales on-site".
