Phil Mickelson’s US Open disappointment boiled over on the ninth hole after he hit his second shot route directly on Thursday.
A NBC camera got a defeated Mickelson mumbling, “I am so sick of this” after a delinquent shot arrived on the first tee at Winged Foot. Mickelson recuperated to record a standard on the hole.
That shot originated from the fairway, yet it was an uncommon methodology from that point as Mickelson battled with his driving precision all through the round.
Mickelson, 50, opened his day with consecutive birdies before three straight bogeys. Be that as it may, it just deteriorated from that point for Mickelson, who was getting back to the site of his most prominent US Open disappointment.
Mickelson shot a 42 on the backside with five bogeys and a double bogey on 14. He completed 9-over, which was only one shot better than Lukas Michel who was in last after the first round.
At the 2006 US Open at Winged Foot, Mickelson, double bogeyed the 72nd hole to cost himself the championship. It was one of his six second-place completes in the US Open.
