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

Phil Mickelson stunningly hits moving ball on purpose for 2-shot penalty			@MrRogers99

Phil Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for hitting a moving ball at the 13th hole during the third round of the US Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Mickelson, who was 4 over through the first 12 holes, saw an 18-foot bogey putt trickle past the hole and on its way to falling off the green. "I know it's a two-shot penalty".

In that situation, I would gladly take the two shots'.

A loophole that some will consider against the general ethos of the game, Mickelson confirmed that there were "multiple times he wanted to do it" before today's incident on the 13th.

Although as many more are happy going along with this more light-hearted, tactful approach.

A player must not make a stroke at his ball while it is moving.

As the biggest bridesmaid in U.S. Open history with a record six runner-up finishes, one of those coming at this same (but different) Shinnecock Hills course back in 2004, Phil Mickelson had to be a bit frustrated coming into his third round. I took the two-shot penalty and moved on.

That was a 2-stroke penalty and Mickelson ended up with a 9 on the hole.

"I said, "That is one of the strangest things I have ever seen" and started laughing, and said "sorry" about laughing, " said Johnston, a jovial Englishman with the nickname Beef. "As a result, he incurred a two stroke penalty for a breach of Rule 14-5".

Phil Mickelson of the United States plays a shot during practice rounds prior to THE PLAYERS Championship on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass on May 8, 2018 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Mickelson finished the round with an 11-over 81, and 17-over for the tournament. The Committee could have ruled that Mickelson stopping his ball on the green allowed him "a significant advantage". "But it was just a moment - I think it's just a moment of madness".
