Phil Mickelson sarcastically raises arms in celebration after triumphing at No. 13

  • Phil Mickelson looking at his shot as it flies through the air

Mickelson then marked his stationary ball before taking two more putts for an eight, which was later corrected to a 10 after he was assessed a two-stroke penalty.

On his 48 birthday, Mickelson was already 4 over par for the day when he found trouble on the 366-yard 13, which has played as one of the most hard holes at Shinnecock this week.

"I don't mean disrespect by anybody", added the five-time major victor, who turned 48 on Saturday. It appeared that he took 8 strokes before the two-stroke penalty was added. I know it's a two-shot penalty.

"Phil really did want to understand how the rule operates because he didn't want to - frankly, as he said to me: 'I don't want to play in this championship if I should have been disqualified, '" said Mike Davis, the USGA's chief executive. At that time, I just didn't feel like going back and forth, hitting the same shot over.

"But then that would still look pretty amusing too if you're able to hit the putt, goes off the green wherever it may go, bunker or down wherever, and you take an unplayable and put it back. If that is not a serious breach of the etiquette of the game, I don't know what is". That, at least, might have been excusable, even for a player in his 27th Open who clearly knows better.

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

Then, despite being 15-over par, he celebrated like he'd finally won the U.S. Open.

"If he acted like that all the time, I think that's different", she said.

He remained in scoring for almost a half hour - he said he was refueling after a long day on the course - before facing dozens of reporters and cameramen.

A Tent City to house Migrant Kids
The company that runs the facility, Southwest Key , told the Washington Post its goal is to take care of the children. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) facility that's sheltering children who entered the country illegally.

Mickelson has legions of fans, but he did not win himself any more this week.

Although part of me loved the chaos and madness of it all, as it made for a compelling day of sporting drama, I do recognise it was completely ridiculous what happened during the third round.

"Look, everybody's got to play it so I'm not saying either way", he said.

Mickelson is one of the professional tour's most loved golfers, the US Golf Association (USGA) will now weigh up if his actions warrant disqualification from the tournament.

"One thing is knowing that I can play with these guys, " Gagne said. I might have saved a shot doing it the way I did. "I was playing it worse than most, and I wanted to get to the next hole eventually, which I did".

Amy Mickelson says husband Phil is not ideal and just had a "bad moment".

"If someone is offended I apologise, but toughen up".

This is one of the more surprising things you'll see. That is something you do in mini-golf, not the U.S. Open - or any tournament.
