USGA apologizes for unfair course in 3rd round of U.S. Open

  • Phil Mickelson hopes the return to Shinnecock will be an end of what he calls

"The pressure is at its highest, and it's just one of those tournaments that's very hard to play well and win".

No matter the weather, Shinnecock can punish anyone in a NY minute.

"He's gone out of his way for me here this week", Scott said after he finished up.

But he later hit a speed bump at the same hole that shook him in the opening round, the par-four first, where he ran up a double-bogey that at least was better than his triple from the previous day. He made bogey on his last hole for a 72. "I said to him: 'Sorry but I can't help but laugh at that, it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.' I've never seen anything like it". The most well-rounded, balanced golfer is typically the one who comes out on top at these setups. I was just fed up with, you know, being good.

Spieth's exit from Shinnecock was particularly cruel, as he birdied four straight holes on the back nine to get inside the cut number, only to bogey the last two, missing a short putt at the 17th and then failing to get up and down from just off the green at the 18th.

"I haven't played in wind like that for quite a long time".

"I feel like right now, my game's in very good shape", Johnson explained to Sporting News. It'll be the surreal image of Mickelson jogging to get behind a ball rolling down a hill, having made the decision to wilfully break one of the simplest Rules of Golf: you can not hit a moving ball. "Because if you don't hit the fairway, you're not getting to the green".

Tiger Woods was a beaten man Friday. Woods was at 150 after rounds of 78 and 72.

But Woods, who was 14 shots behind Johnson, said that 10 official starts into his latest injury comeback he had no doubt he would add to his total of 14 major championships. 1 was phenomenal last weekend in Memphis and cruised to a six-shot victory, and he has yet to falter through 36 holes at the U.S. Open.

Jordan Spieth: The agonizing struggles continue. "I'm just trying to get it back in play and then give myself just a look at par". He had not missed the cut in a major since the 2014 PGA Championship. Woods had made the turn at even for the round and 8 over for the tournament when that two-hole stretch effectively made his fight to make the weekend a long shot. Piercy's day was not without regrets, especially when he three-putted from 4 feet for bogey on the par-5 16th.

Another Englishman Tommy Fleetwood shot the low round of the week - a 66 - to also finish on one over with former Open champion Henrik Stenson and defending US Open champion Brooks Koepka.

And while you can point it his five successive top-10 finishes in the Masters and back-to-back top-five finishes in The Open as indicators that there's little wrong, his high expectations and those of his admirers make winning just one other tournament since he captured the Tour Championship in September 2016 look like under-achievement.

In ideal scoring conditions in the afternoon, no one could catch him. He's won these majors before, he said (as if the world might need reminding he has 14 of them already, second all time to only Jack Nicklaus) and has no doubt he can win them again. "There's not many birdies". From every corner there was homage and gratitude, nods to Tiger's indisputable ability to "move the needle".

Asked if people would find his actions on No. 13 disrespectful, Mickelson said: "It's meant to take advantage of the rules as best as you can".

The 79-time US Tour victor says he will need to peak for the Open if he is serious about chasing down Jack Nicklaus' record 18 major titles.

Dustin Johnson actually got it to -3r after 11 to challenge the clubhouse lead held by early starters Poulter and Piercey, but he dropped two shots on the back nine. "That could happen to DJ", Rose said.
