Twitter reacts to Phil Mickelson’s epic meltdown at the U.S. Open

Phil Mickelson is all of us. Every single last one of us. Like most pros at the 2018 U.S. Open in New York, Lefty has struggled something fierce thus far this week. Conditions at Shinnecock haven’t been indicative of success.

Though, Phil took that to a completely different level on the 13th hole Saturday. Already completely out of the race, Mickelson melted down in a big way. Watch the epic scene below.

Yes, that’s what we’d call a meltdown. It resulted in a two-stroke penalty for Mickelson to bring him to an eye-opening plus-16 after taking a 10 on the par four.

It goes without saying that the Twitterverse had a lot to say about this. Most related to Mickelson’s actions, while others were simply stunned by the amateurish display.



Happy birthday, Lefty.
