One moment perfectly summed up his state of mind at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y. As he watched one shot drift off course, he bowed his head and sighed. “Ah, man, I’m so sick of this.”
Video of the comment went viral.
The five-time major winner has had his share of disappointments at the U.S. Open, including a double-bogey breakdown on the last hole at Winged Foot to lose by a stroke in 2006.
But Thursday’s frustration in a lower-stakes situation still caught Twitter’s attention. Mickelson received sympathy, tips and some razzing, too.
