Frustrated Phil Mickelson swats moving ball with putter at U.S. Open

The surprising thing about all of this is that Phil Mickelson has admitted that he didn't lose the plot on the 13th hole when he did this at the US Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Allen reports that the USGA are satisfied with levying a two stroke penalty.

Mickelson admitted post-round he hit the ball prematurely deliberately to stop the ball going off the green again, although did that put him a better position?

"I played a lot better", said Mickelson, whow as on the ropes after a first-round 77.

Phil Mickelson was handed a two-shot penalty during the third round of the US Open, but should he have been punished further? I don't know if I was able to save a shot or not. "He's putted bad enough that I think he just snapped at how bad his speed was on that putt".

Daly was on No. 8 in the final round when he took an 11 on the hole and signed for an 81.

Contributing to his downfall was a meltdown on the par four 13th. Gotten to that point where you've just had enough of the course or setup? "I've never seen that in tournament, only when playing with my mates".

And two-time US Open champion Curtis Strange added: "He will feel some embarrassment because there are a lot of people and kids watching that really admire this guy".

Mickelson was having a miserable time before reaching 13.

"And then once it gets to the pin, it goes away, so I don't want to go past, and I'm just leaving everything short".
