Phil Mickelson has harsh response to critics of his penalty

Phil Mickelson moving ball

The difficult course at Shinnecock Hills took its toll on Phil Mickelson Saturday, who pulled a questionable sportsmanship move.

Mickelson putted a moving ball on the 13th hole during his third round of the US Open, taking a two-stroke penalty in the process.

The five-time major winner acknowledged his frustration had gotten the better of him and that he did it intentionally. He also said that critics need to “toughen up.”

The response from Phil on the course was certainly out of character. His defiance afterwards and lack of apology will certainly lead to only more controversy.
