Phil Mickelson reaches US Open breaking point

Phil Mickelson’s US Open frustration boiled over on the ninth hole after he hit his second shot way right on Thursday.

An NBC camera caught a defeated Mickelson muttering, “I am so sick of this” after the wayward shot landed on the first tee at Winged Foot. Mickelson did recover to record a par on the hole.

That shot came from the fairway, but it was a rare approach from there as Mickelson struggled with his driving accuracy throughout the early portions of his round.

Mickelson did open his day with back-to-back birdies before three straight bogeys. Mickelson’s score had ballooned to 3-over after a bogey on 10.
