If you hadn't already heard, today during the round three, on the 13th hole Mickleson missed a putt sending the ball rolling well past the hole and down hill. Instead of waiting for it to stop so he could line up his next putt he chased the still rolling ball and hit it back up the slope to within four feet of the hole. The USGA ruled that Mickleson's actions were not extreme and that he would be assessed a two stroke penalty. However, the USGA could have ruled Mickleson's actions extreme and unsportsman like and DQ'd him. Currently USGA officials are bending over backward to explain why Mickleson hasn't been DQ'd.
Now I like Lefty as much as anybody, but this is behavior that the USGA and fellow golfers should never condone and surely not let pass with a mere two stroke penalty. How many players would have won tournaments if they had thought to catch a ball before it rolled off the green, into the water, or into a pot bunker?
