U.S. Open 2018: Phil Mickelson celebrates 13th hole after previous day's drama


The 13th hole went much better for Phil Mickelson Sunday than it did Saturday.

Mickelson gave a mock celebration after he sunk his par putt on the 13th hole at the U.S. Open to a giant round of applause, which was far less dramatic than his performance on the 13th the day before.

Mickelson received a two-stroke penalty Saturday after he stopped his moving ball, finishing the hole with a sextuple bogey. Many called for Mickelson to be disqualified, and he later issued an apology for his actions.

“Look, I don’t mean disrespect to anybody,” Mickelson said Saturday. “I know it’s a two-shot penalty. At that time, I just didn’t feel like going back and forth and hitting the shot over. I took the two-shot penalty and moved on. It’s my understanding of the rules. I’ve had multiple times when I’ve wanted to do that. I just finally did.”

Mickelson currently is sitting tied at 55 with 16-over par.
