He has been confronted with countless rulings during his 49 professional wins but, for all that Mickelson has experienced, what occurred on the 13th hole on Saturday at the US Open has to go down as the most extraordinary sequence of his storied career.
"At that time I didn't feel like going back-and-forth and hitting the same shot over", Mickelson said after his round, admitting he knew he'd be penalised. Mickelson's shocking swat was still the talk of this Open, especially after USGA executive director Mike Davisrevealed Saturday night that Mickelson had called him to ask for more clarification on the rule he said that he knew he'd broken.
Mickelson had caused a stir at the tournament after his blatant rules violation, hitting a still-moving ball that was in the process of rolling off the green. Like anybody, good people make mistakes. And I would gladly take the two shots over continuing that display.
Senior rules official John Bodehamer and his committee chose to implement Rule 14-5, meaning Mickelson actually scored a sextuple-bogey 10 before going on to return an 11-over 81 which left him third from bottom on 17 over par. It's something you might see at your home course with your mates or something. "Phil running down a putt & hitting it while its moving or giving the thumbs up & shit eating grin on the next hole.WTF was that?"
"Phil really did want to understand how the rule operates", Davis said, via Randall Mell of the Gold Channel. There is even a clause that states if the player purposely "deflects or stops" his ball, it goes back to Rule 1-2, along with the potential DQ. "It was just a moment of madness but nothing disrespectful", the Briton said.

Phil Mickelson started the final round of the US Open at Shinnecock Hills 14 strokes behind the leaders, but he had become the story of the tournament thanks to a freakish penalty and a ruling from the US Golf Association that many disagreed with.
Again, he took a 10 on the hole - the highest score for any hole in the U.S. Open - and he was 21 shots behind the leaders at that time. Taking his two-shot penalty, the extremely unusual incident divided viewers between those who condemned the action, and those who saw the amusing side of it. I don't know if it would have saved me a shot or not. "He just laughed at me, he had no words to say".
