'Embarrassed' Mickelson apologizes for U.S. Open rules violation

Phil Mickelson did not have ‘his finest moment’ at US Open wife

He's playing for the best score he can.

Some called for the five-time major victor to be disqualified but breach of rule 14-5 (playing a moving ball) was invoked which instead incurred a two-shot penalty.

"I know this should've come sooner, but it's taken me a few days to calm down", Mickelson wrote to the website.

Whilst there has been uproar about Mickelson's rules infringement, Spieth doesn't think it is a big issue. The conditions the first day were tough, but I just shot myself in the foot.

Waiting crowds caught a glimpse of the newborn swaddled in white blankets as he emerged with William and a radiant-looking Kate. The announcement comes days after speculation that his Christening would happen between of June and first weeks of July .

"It was clearly not my finest moment and I'm sorry", he said. It's certainly not meant that way. I took the two-shot penalty and moved on.

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

Amid the calls for his removal from the tournament, Mickelson on Saturday did meet with USGA officials to discuss whether he should withdraw. "I said, 'That's one of the strangest things I've ever seen, ' and then just started laughing", Johnston said, according to Golfchannel.com. "I think what he did was amusing". He was given a two-stroke penalty at the time, but he should have been disqualified.

"He did not let the ball come to rest and if that is not a serious breach I don't what is and they should have applied the rule that says disqualification", Westwood told Sky Sports UK. "He made a stroke at a moving ball, which is explicitly covered under 14-5". Mickelson, who previously had defended his actions on the 13th green in Round 3 at Shinnecock Hills, noted that his frustration and anger boiled over and he more or less snapped.

Adam became locked in an argument with his current partner Rosie over his growing feelings for new girl Zara. Rosie had tearfully poured her heart out to Adam on Tuesday's episode, only for Adam to smirk in response.

The latest comments from Mickelson, however, suggest his actions - which many critics felt bent the usual etiquette and spirit of the game - were more of an impulse rather than the calculated use of the rule book.

After the round, Mickelson said he knew exactly what he was doing and that he didn't mean any disrespect, even telling people who were offended to "toughen up".

Mickelson, 48, has finished second in the U.S. Open a record six times.
