A glance at the third round of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, New York.
Big number: Phil Mickelson took a 10 on the 13th hole on his way to an 81.
Big controversy: Mickelson ran and intentionally hit his ball back to the hole while it was still moving on 13, getting a 2-stroke penalty.
Notable: It was the highest 54-hole score to lead in a U.S. Open since 1974.
Key stat: The scoring average was 75.33, the highest for a third round since Pebble Beach in 2000. There were three rounds under par, and eight over 80.
Quotable: ”I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s something you might see at your home course with your mates or something. But it was just a moment – I think it’s just a moment of madness.” – playing partner Andrew Johnston, on Mickelson hitting his ball while it was moving.
