Share

Mickelson, who turned 48 on Saturday, hit a moving ball at the par-4 13th hole at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. "You take the two shots and you move on". 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.

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. "He just laughed at me, he had no words to say".

"I don't think the Rules contemplate something like this at the highest level", Fay told Buck.

Afterwards, Mickelson - who is now on +17 after three rounds at Shinnecock Hills - says he has long wanted to give up on a hole by hitting a moving ball.

World number one Johnson was the only man under par through 36 holes, leading the tournament with a four-under total of 136.

"No question it was going to go down into the same spot behind the bunker".

And two-time US Open champion Curtis Strange added: "He will feel some embarrassment because there are a lot of people and kids watching that really admire this guy".

Mickelson, while putting on the 13th green, smacked a 15 footer by the cup.

"No question it was going to go down into the same spot behind the bunker and I wasn't going to have a shot".

Mickelson has finished runner-up a record six times in the US Open, the last major he needs to complete the set of all four of golf's big titles.

"I've wanted to do it many times before and finally did".
