Phil Mickelson has moment of madness at US Open

Andrew Johnston, who was paired with Mickelson, was stunned by the incident and broke into laughter, prompting the American to also grin as the pair walked off the green.

Phil Mickelson caused quite the stir in Saturday's third round of the U.S. Open, putting a ball that was still in motion on the 13th green.

Mickelson took a two-shot penalty for the infraction, then finished up for what was initially reported to be a quadruple bogey nine.

Mickelson tried to downplay the controversy and offered a limp apology to reporters after signing his scorecard. And if that's the way people took it, I apologize to them. "I said I'm sorry, but I've got to laugh at this", Johnston said.

"It's meant to take advantage of the rules the best you can".

The Socceroos , rank outsiders, outplayed tournament fancies France for much of the contest. '(I am) proud and disappointed. France opened up its 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign in Group C with a win, but it didn't look sharp in doing so.

Former European Tour player Tony Johnstone wrote: "How can the USGA NOT kick his butt out of there?"

He was back the next year at Pebble Beach, where he pumped three shots into the Pacific Ocean on the famed 18th and hit another shot into someone's backyard. The ball began racing toward the front of the green, threatening to fall down the false front. "I would gladly take the two shots over continuing that display", Mickelson said. I've had multiple times I've wanted to do that. "He's putted bad enough that I think he just snapped at how bad his speed was on that putt".

Meanwhile others simply saw the amusing side. And on the 13th hole, he let his frustrations boil over.

It was not immediately clear what was Mickelson's motive in striking the ball. I might have saved a shot doing it the way I did. I wasn't going to have a shot.

"It's something you might see at your club with your mates".

But I know it's a two-shot penalty, hitting a moving ball.

Whether some of the fans knew of the mishap or not, there were number of them looking for autographs once Mickelson did his interviews, both for Fox and the throng of reporters just outside the clubhouse.

The start of that sequence was for bogey on the par-four 13th.

It certainly was one of the most surreal moments of all the 118 U.S. Opens contested.
