It is the only major championship he has not won, and should he manage to win one, he'll become just the sixth player in history to win the career Grand Slam.
But for arguably the greatest short game player in the world to insist he did what he did to avoid playing another shot from in front of the green was disingenuous at best, and dishonest at its worst. There are lots of six-putts, and it's more about a good time than serious golf.
Phil Mickelson says he is "embarrassed and disappointed" after he putted a moving ball during the US Open.
I am a paying member of the USGA. I believe he will.
The USGA has capped ticket sales at 30,000 per day, but the event is also drawing thousands of support staff each day: from numerous 4,500 volunteers, to thousands of staff working for vendors in hospitality tents and concessions booths to hundreds of security guards. "It was amusing because I didn't think he hit that bad of a chip shot from behind the green in the first place".
Then he goes out and makes a "Happy Gilmore" move on one of golf's biggest stages. The result is little margin for error on either side.
Koepka posted a gritty 68 and at one over he secured a one-shot win over Tommy Fleetwood (63).
He was 21 strokes off the lead at the time at the ridiculously punishing Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, and I think Phil's actions were akin to him giving the USGA the middle finger for setting up such an absurdly challenging golf course.
Many U.S. Open fans watching at home were shocked, too. I don't know if it would have saved me a shot or not.
During a third round which saw firm, fast conditions and some questionable pin positions send scores soaring, Mickelson admitted he deliberately hit a moving ball to gain an advantage.
"I know this should've come sooner, but it's taken me a few days to calm down", it reportedly said.
Mickelson intentionally broke a rule because he calculated that the penalty would serve him better than the alternative.
Some say, "It's just Phil being Phil".
Cape Town - Phil Mickelson has had no shortage of his criticism for his behaviour in the third round of the US Open, but his wife isn't having any of it. He would have been running from pitchforks. Our national championship. Not mini-golf. "Sometimes in these situations it is just easier to take the two shots and move on". Yes, I get that some people seem to take perverse enjoyment out of seeing the game's top players finding things way more hard than they are used to on a week-to-week basis, but no way is it good for the game as a spectacle to a worldwide audience for good shots to be severely punished, as was the case here.
But Mickelson also often thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.
Mickelson played Sunday, shooting 1-under 69, including a par at the 13th hole.
