Phil Mickelson moving ball: Twitter goes wild US Open mistake

Phil Mickelson makes the cut but not the way you would expect

Instead of waiting for the inevitable, Lefty ran over to the ball while it was still moving. and hit it back at the hole.

The surprising thing about all of this is that Phil Mickelson has admitted that he didn't lose the plot on the 13th hole when he did this at the US Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Mickelson jogged after the ball after it curled around the hole, realizing it was about to head down the other side of the green.

It was not immediately clear what was Mickelson's motive in striking the ball. Had he done the latter he would have been disqualified.

"He didn't deflect it or stop it".

Mickelson's answer would suggest otherwise.

Federal Reserve raises U.S. interest rates again
The move reflects the economy's resilience, the job market's strength and inflation that's finally nearing the Fed's target level. That compares with March's forecasts for 3.8 per cent this year and 3.6 per cent in the following two years.

"It was meant to take advantage of the rules as best as you can". I looked at him and I was like, 'Is this actually happening?!' But honestly, I looked at him and I said to him, 'Sorry, but I can't help but laugh at that. It's my understanding of the rules.

When it was all said and done, Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for hitting the ball while still in play, forcing him to walk away with a 10. In fairness to Mickelson, the best aren't immune to a brain freeze or a meltdown and he'll surely put his act down to something like that.

Mickelson, who has been a U.S. Open runner-up six times, most recently in 2013, was having a miserable time Saturday before reaching 13. But Daly was always the combustible outlaw type, whereas Mickelson has a carefully cultivated image as one of the game's leading ambassadors.

He cited the 1995 US Open, also at Shinnecock, recalling that Neil Lancaster went out in benign morning conditions and shot an opening nine-hole score of 29 to thrust himself into contention.

"That is stunning", said Fox Sports rules analyst David Fay, a former USGA executive director. "I've had multiple times where I've wanted to do that, I just finally did". "I've never seen anything like that from a world-class player in my life".
