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.

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