Saturday, Phil Mickelson made himself a lightning rod in the holier-than-thou golf world.

Sunday, he piled on with a hysterical troll job.

One day after running across the green and smacking a moving ball on No. 13, Mickelson rolled in a short putt to save par on that same hole at Shinnecock Hills.

Then, despite being 15-over par, he celebrated like he’d finally won the U.S. Open.

The mock celebration followed a day’s worth of outrage in the golf world, with fans and media members arguing that Lefty should have been disqualified from the tournament, rather than assessed http://www.authenticrangershop.com/authentic-2-brian-leetch-jersey.html the two-stroke penalty that he received for his antics.

For his part, Mickelson said Saturday that his outburst was actually done strategically; he thought the two stroke-penalty would still lead to a better score than letting his ball roll off the front of the green.

He also seemed to take some subtle jabs at how the course was playing with part of his explanation.

I could have been going back (and forth) – I could still be out there potentially, Mickelson said. I Brian Leetch Jersey took two shots and moved on and got to play the next hole.

While that line was on the mild end of the spectrum, it was among a number of criticisms the USGA received after Saturday’s conditions made for an absolutely brutal afternoon.

Zach Johnson said the USGA lost the course. Even USGA CEO Mike Davis admitted on the Fox broadcast that the course was probably too tough while the leaders were playing it.

That led to players struggling to hold greens with approach shots and even putting the ball off the green, due to extremely firm and overly fast conditions. http://www.officialcoyotesonline.com/Christian_Fischer_Jersey

The USGA then promised to water the course overnight and ensure more playable conditions on Sunday. That clearly proved to be the case for Mickelson, at least, with things going slightly better on No. 13 this time around.
