Phil Mickelson penalized after hitting moving ball

Rickie Fowler finally can capitalize on his US Open shot

After the debacle of the 2004 US Open at Shinnecock Hills when they allowed the seventh green to die of thirst, leading to the humiliation of the best players in the world, the new USGA elite fumbled Dustin Johnson's rules troubles at Oakmont two years ago before giving Mickelson kid gloves treatment while at the same time, nearly losing control of the golf course.

With the penalty, Mickelson carded a sextuple-bogey 10 on the par-4 hole, pushing him to 10-over for the round and plus-16 for the tournament.

A remarkable sequence on Hole 13, where Phil Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for hitting a moving ball and ended up making a 10 on the hole.

"I feel really good about the position I'm in", Koepka said. He acknowledged the ball would have rolled off the green and rather than try his luck from there, he took the 2-stroke penalty and moved on.

It's hard to imagine Bobby Jones or Arnold Palmer running across a green to intentionally take a penalty with the intention of saving a shot to two, especially at the US Open. "I wasn't going to have a shot".

But if in that moment, you putt a golf ball while it is still rolling so it doesn't scoot off the green, well, Mrs. Mickelson may have a point. It's meant to take advantage of the rules as best as you can. "That's where we clarified that, 'Phil, you actually made a stroke at a moving ball, and so we have to apply that rule.' That's different than if he had deliberately just stopped the ball or whacked it in another direction or something like that".

England's 2013 champion Justin Rose was one of a number of overseas players who had to endure abuse from a raucous and highly charged NY crowd, but he held his nerve to sit one shot further back. "I just kept saying 'What is he doing?"

He steadied himself on the back nine, with a birdie on the 11th and he had a one-shot lead playing the last but finished with a three-putt bogey from 18 feet.

"It started to get a lot firmer and faster", he said.

"It was just a moment of madness but nothing disrespectful", the Briton said.

"He's a good man who had a bad moment", as Amy Mickelson, his wife of 22 years, said.

Commentating on the incident for Fox, former Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger said: "That's the most out of character I have ever seen Phil". It's Mickelson, though, who is going to get my first volley of criticism as the dust settles on the 118th US Open at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island.

It happened on Saturday, Phil's 48th birthday.

Shinnecock Hills looks the kind of place Jay Gatsby would saunter up for a game.

"You might have a bad day at work or do something or say something that you regret".
