Rick Zamperin: Phil Mickelson gave USGA the middle finger with bogey putt

Rick Zamperin: Phil Mickelson gave USGA the middle finger with bogey putt

Mickelson said he had thought about doing the same thing many times, including on the tricky 15th green at the Masters.

Mickelson has had a rough tournament - he was +10 at the time and finished the day at +17 overall - and his putting in particular was way off.

"I think you've got to because it was outrageous what they did to the course". I have had multiple times where I've wanted to do that.

"I think he was a chump", Hopkins stated bluntly, via Brendan Porath of SB Nation.

After sending a bogey putt speeding past the cup on the 13th hole, Mickelson basically snapped.

If the photo below is anything to go by, the bombardment of questions towards Mickelson will not cease soon. "If that is not a serious breach of the etiquette of the game, I don't know what is".

As he walked off the green, he could be seen smiling and talking to playing partner Andrew Johnston, who also was smiling. "It just happened. I said, 'That's one of the strangest things I've ever seen, ' and then just started laughing, to be honest". And in that situation, it was just going- I was just going back and forth. It's a two-shot penalty on top of the score, so it ends up being a nine, and as of now it's on the scorecard as a such.

Not everyone accepted Mickelson's explanation of his decision to make the controversial move - and many were quick to say that since Mickelson wasn't disqualified by tournament officials, he should have disqualified himself.

"He didn't deflect it or stop it". "He played a moving ball".

"I feel my game is made for championship golf", said the extremely long-hitting Finau, who believes he is developing a complete, all-round game. "There are legal limits to how much slope you can put a hole on and I would say that was beyond the legal limit". "John Daly's reputation took a hit after what he did at Pinehurst in '99, and I fear it will be the same for Phil", said former US Golf Association executive director David Fay.

After his round, Mickelson admitted to intentionally hitting the moving ball because he didn't want it to roll off the green.

"That pin at 13 was a joke".

"Everybody has to play it", he said.

When Lefty got to that hole Sunday, it was a bit of a different story.

"It's the U.S. Open". It's too bad that one 10-second lapse resulting in a two-stroke penalty might leave a permanent. scar.

The USGA opted not to disqualify Mickelson for Sunday, although there would have been grounds to do so.

Mickelson was strikingly remorseless about the incident. As he headed toward the scoring cabin, he offered wry smiles, high-fived the fans lining the barricades and gave a few thumbs-up.

Zach Johnson said the USGA "lost the course". 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 odd way. The crowd was singing, "Happy Birthday".
