More embarrassing Phil Mickelson U.S. Open moment: Winged Foot or Shinnecock Hills?

Phil Mickelson was charged a two-stroke penalty for hitting a moving ball at the U.S. Open, ruffling the feathers of golf fans. Mickelson hasn't had a lot of luck at the U.S. Open, the only major tournament he hasn't won. One of his worst moments was melting down at Winged Foot's 18th hole, well in position to win the tournament. Still, seeing Phil hit a moving ball like a four-year-old at a mini-golf course was shocking. What do you think? 🏌

Phil Mickelson had a one-stroke lead heading into the 18th hole at Winged Foot. Not only did he have a chance to win all four major tournaments, he could've also completed the Tiger Slam—holding all four championships between two seasons. But when it was all there for him, he collapsed, going double bogey to fall to second place. Choking with immortality right there in front of him has to be the most embarrassing.

Remember when you were a kid at the putt-putt golf course and you stopped a ball that rolled past the hole in frustration? That's what a world-class golfer did at the freaking U.S. Open. Phil Mickelson is neither a child nor was he playing mini-golf. To have such a gaffe on the biggest stage is a complete disgrace. A lot of respect towards Mickelson was lost that day.
