Phil Mickelson putting meltdown at U.S. Open is epic

Phil Mickelson needed something low in Round 3 at the U.S. Open on Saturday at Shinnecock Hills.

It was a childish display from a five-time major victor celebrating his 48th birthday. "He played a moving ball", Bodenhamer said. He hustled after the putt - and hit it back toward the hole before it stopped rolling.

Mickelson's shocking display in the third round earned him a 2-stroke penalty for breaking the rule against hitting a moving ball and led to a 10 on the hole, an 81 overall. "It's covered under 14-5". He got off to a decent start on Saturday with three consecutive pars and then birdied the 481-yard, par-4 fourth hole to get to 1-under for the day.

It was reminiscent of John Daly hitting a moving ball at Pinehurst No. 2 in the 1999 US Open.

Serious breaches of this rule could result in disqualification.

If Kim makes such a change, he said, " President Trump is prepared to assure that there's going to be a successful transition". Upon his arrival, President Trump first met with the Prime Minister of Singapore , who is hosting the summit.

"No question it was going to go down into the same spot behind the bunker". Mickelson was penalized two shots and posted a 10, but the trouble it caused - some people called for Mickelson to be disqualified - far exceeded the score.

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

"It's meant to take advantage of the rules as best as you can". The action stunned the commentators, and Mickelson's comeback put lipped out of the hole. He had four consecutive bogeys before parring the 12th, despite the serenading of "Happy Birthday" from the crowds at every hole.

Johnston told BBC Radio 5 Live: "His body acted quicker than his brain".

"If I can shoot that or anybody who just made the cut, I think there's potential", he said.
