1 year agoPhil Mickelson was looking to complete the career grand slam this past week at Shinnecock Hills, where he finished in second place to Retief Goosen in 2004. That idea failed to materialize for Mickelson after shooting a dismal seven-over par 77 in the first round, but he backed it up with a one-under par 69 on Friday to sit comfortably heading into the weekend. Controversy struck on the back nine of Mickelson's already four-over round. Mickelson had already hit his bogey putt on the 13th green but missed the hole and jogged over to the ball and gave it another stroke while it was still moving, thus breaking Rule 14-5, which states that you cannot make a stroke on a moving ball. Mickelson was assessed a two-stroke penalty for his actions and recorded a whopping 10 for the hole. He would go on to finish the day at 11-over par and 17-over for the tournament. Mickelson rallied on Sunday with a one-under par 69 to finish T48 at 16-over par. Some fellow tour players feel that Mickelson should have been disqualified for his actions and that the United States Golf Association dropped the ball with the punishment. Mickelson is ranked 19th in the Official World Golf Rankings and has a scoring average of 69.884.--Todd Dorsa - RotoBaller
