Mickelson apologizes 4 days after violating golf rules

  • Mickelson's actions caught Beef Johnston by surprise

"My anger and frustration got the best of me last weekend", Mickelson, six times an Open runner-up, told Golf Channel in a note shared with a select group of media members.

The five-time major champion said he was "embarrassed and disappointed" by his actions. His wife, Amy, was quoted as saying, "You know it's not his finest moment, but hopefully he'll learn from it".

Mickelson was struggling in the third round when he reached the 13th green.

I was especially tickled to hear an announcer from "across The Pond" during the televised coverage say Mickelson had besmirched the "spirit of the game". We're done, but we're not done, if you know what we mean.

Several Tour pros have come out and said that Mickelson should have been disqualified for the actions.

"It was us applying the rules", Davis said.

But he added: "The reality is that there is no arrangement outside the European Union that is as good as membership". Speaking to legislators, he said, "There will be no return to a hard border".

"That's different than if he had deliberately just stopped the ball or whacked it in another direction or something like that. So it's just, it's us applying the rules".

But Mickelson didn't pull out and finished off his championship with a final-round 69 to end up T-48.

When interviewed immediately after his round, Mickelson said that he didn't mean any disrespect, and was simply playing strategically. Chip it too hard, run over before it gets to the water and knock it on the green so you don't have to hit it again or go the drop zone! So if that was the intent, then what's the harm in that? Had he played the ball conventionally, he risked a score higher than the 10 he ended up getting on the par 4 hole. I took the 2-shot penalty and moved on.

Yet McIlroy plainly did not feel it necessary, as he recorded his empathy in his pre-tournament press conference at the Travelers Championship, which begins in CT today. "I felt it was a massive overreaction to it. Phil knew what he was doing".

"I saw what happened (after practice), and honestly, I laughed", McIlroy said, per USA Today's William S. Paxton. Look, it's a tournament that Phil has come so close to winning over the past few years. In that situation, I was just going back and forth.
