Phil Mickelson Took Advantage Of Risky Loophole With Double-Putt

Phil Mickelson Took Advantage Of Risky Loophole With Double-Putt

It was a childish display from a five-time major victor celebrating his 48th birthday.

On his 48th birthday, Phil Mickelson endured a testing afternoon in the US Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Johnston, who shot 82 Saturday while playing alongside Mickelson, called Mickelson's move "one of the mad moments".

He then took a quick jog over to the ball and hit it as it still seemed to be moving.

"I don't mean any disrespect and if that's the way people took it, I apologise to them".

Phil Mickelson of the United States plays a shot during the first round of THE PLAYERS Championship on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass on May 10, 2018 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

"If I can shoot that or anybody who just made the cut, I think there's potential", he said. The ball began racing toward the front of the green, threatening to fall down the false front.

World number one Johnson was the only man under par through 36 holes, leading the tournament with a four-under total of 136.

He then two-putted. With the 2-shot penalty, he was given a sextuple-bogey 10 that was the highest score on any hole at this U.S. Open, according to the USGA. I know the rules and the ball was going to go off in a bad spot. He had those four consecutive bogeys before a par at the 12th. A round that began with fans singing "Happy Birthday" to Mickelson as he walked down the first fairway went off the rails in a very unusual way.

Mickelson was having a miserable time before reaching 13.

"It would mean an bad lot, I want to be the sixth", Mickelson said before the tournament began.
