Phil Mickelson shockingly chases, swats moving ball with putter

After Mickelson blew a relatively short putt past the hole on the 13th green at Shinnecock Hills on Saturday, he raced around the other side of the cup to quickly smack another putt.

Mickelson was faced with a 12-foot bogey putt and after sending it well past the hole, Lefty ran to his ball to hit it again before it went down the slope.

"I said, "That is one of the strangest things I have ever seen" and started laughing, and said "sorry" about laughing, " said Johnston, a jovial Englishman with the nickname Beef.

After carding an 11-over par round of 81 to leave him 17 over for the tournament, Mickelson said: 'It's meant to take advantage of the rules as best you can.

As the biggest bridesmaid in U.S. Open history with a record six runner-up finishes, one of those coming at this same (but different) Shinnecock Hills course back in 2004, Phil Mickelson had to be a bit frustrated coming into his third round. "I just finally did".

The 2018 U.S. Open is well underway.

Round 3 of the tournament didn't bode well for Phil Mickelson.

Substitute Denis Cheryshev scored two brilliant goals after Yury Gazinsky had headed the World Cup's first after 12 minutes. Usually referred to as just the World Cup, the tournament is the biggest sporting competition on the planet.

"I think he just snapped". Then he kept on with his round and parred the most hard hole on the course, the 14th, still smiling and acknowledging fans.

"I would gladly take the two shots over continuing that display." he said when asked about it by Curtis Strange of Fox.

Allen reports that the USGA are satisfied with levying a two stroke penalty.

Mickelson, who was already four over par for the day, badly overhit a putt on the 13th green which looked in danger of rolling off the putting surface.

Phil Mickelson just did something you do if you're four years old and playing mini golf for the first time.

Strangely, the USGA deemed that Mickelson "played" the moving ball, rather than "moving or stopping" it, which could have brought disqualification into play.
