Phil Mickelson could be DQ'ed after purposefully striking moving ball

Round 3 of the tournament didn't bode well for Phil Mickelson. I have had multiple times where I've wanted to do that.

Mickelson was putting down the hill for bogey at the par-four 13th having earlier seen an early chip from the back of the green run off the front edge, but what happened next will be replayed for many months to come. He then said: "This is my last U.S. Open - ever". He got off to a decent start on Saturday with three consecutive pars and then birdied the 481-yard, par-4 fourth hole to get to 1-under for the day.

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. As it headed toward a steeper slope, Mickelson broke into a jog, caught up to the ball and hit it back towards the hole with his putter before it could roll all the way down the slope.

Phil Mickelson's 48th birthday is going to be a memorable one for all the wrong reasons. With the two-shot penalty, he was given a sextuple-bogey 10 on the hole and was 10 over for his round.

As he's still on the golf course at the time of this writing, Mickelson hasn't yet spoken on the matter but word from the FOX broadcast is that he took the penalty on objective in protest of the pin placements and the setup in general, a setup that he actually said he enjoyed earlier in the week.

Phil Mickelson ran up a sextuple-bogey 10 in a freaky incident which soured his 48th birthday celebrations on day three of the US Open. At that time, I just didn't feel like going back and forth and hitting the same shot over. He would end up with a 10 on the hole and with an 81 Saturday.

A player must not make a stroke at his ball while it is moving. "I would gladly take the two shots over continuing that display".
