Phil Mickelson's 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green.

That was a 2-stroke penalty and Mickelson ended up with a 9 on the hole. "The last time I saw something like that was John Daly at the '99 [U.S.] Open at Pinehurst". In fairness to Mickelson, the best aren't immune to a brain freeze or a meltdown and he'll surely put his act down to something like that. "I don't know if I would have been able to save a shot or whatnot, but I know it's a two-shot penalty hitting a moving ball, I tried to hit it as close to the hole as I could to make the next one". Joe Buck announced after Mickelson had made par at the next hole that his score on the 13th had been changed to a sextuple-bogey 10.

"That's the most out of character I've ever seen Phil Mickelson", Paul Azinger said on the Fox broadcast.

As he walked off the green, he could be seen smiling and talking to playing partner Andrew Johnston, who also was smiling.

Mickelson was given a 10 for the par-4 hole.

As the biggest bridesmaid in U.S. Open history with a record six runner-up finishes, one of those coming at this same (but different) Shinnecock Hills course back in 2004, Phil Mickelson had to be a bit frustrated coming into his third round. "He just laughed at me, he had no words to say". Then he kept on with his round and parred the most hard hole on the course, the 14th, still smiling and acknowledging fans.

"Look, I don't mean disrespect to anybody". He missed that putt as well and then tapped in for a 10 with the penalty he had to take, putting him at 10-over for the day and in a position where he's going to have some explaining to do. At that time, I just didn't feel like going back and forth and hitting the same shot over.
