The US Open at Shinnecock Hills was challenging and some say unfair test of the world's greatest golfers skills. Brooks Koepka won his second straight US Open with a score of +1 which is a great sign of the courses level of difficulty. The story isn't Koepka anymore because Phil Mickelson did something I've only seen at Mini Golf Courses.

Sometimes when I'm in a heated game of putt putt with my daughter I'll chase and swat a moving ball only to be scolded by a small child. She would inform me that I lost the game because "DAD YOU CHEATED!" So if my daughter has an issue with it why would Phil think it was ok?

Ultimately I'm not super torn up about it like some golf purists are but ask yourself, If this was a golfer with less fame than Mickelson would he of been disqualified? I think so.
