Phil Mickelson acknowledges that he's "embarrassed" by his actions on the 13th green Saturday at the U.S. Open.

It’s been four days since Phil Mickelson’s stunning meltdown on the 13th hole of his US Open third round at Shinnecock Hills and on Wednesday, after some soul searching, Mickelson told The Post he’s “sorry” for what happened. “I know this should have come sooner, but it’s taken me a few days to calm down,” Mickelson said. “My anger and frustration got the best of me last weekend. I’m embarrassed and disappointed in my actions. It was clearly not my finest moment and I’m sorry.” The incident took place Saturday afternoon, when Mickelson was frustrated by the unplayable nature of the pin position on the 13th green and his 18-foot bogey putt rolled past the cup and began to roll off the green. He

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — A lot of PGA golfers are spending this week trying to get back some confidence after last week's U.S. Open. Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Bubba Watson and defending champion Jordan Spieth are among those playing the Travelers Championship after missing the cut at Shinnecock Hills. Spieth credits his win at TPC River Highlands last year with helping propel him toward the British Open title a month later. He says being in contention this week will be a big key in again getting his game into championship shape. The Travelers was chosen by the PGA last year as its "Tournament of the Year" and the "Players Choice." That has helped attract a 156-player field that includes five of

Following his U.S. Open win in 2017, Brooks Koepka promptly flew to Vegas to celebrate and didn't tee it up again until the British Open. Koepka boarded a private plane at Shinnecock Hills after his second major victory, but he only made a brief detour home before returning to the northeast for this week's Travelers Championship. Koepka's not the worst play at TPC River Highlands, but combine the distractions of winning another major with playing the percentages (he still only has ONE PGA Tour win other than his two U.S. Open titles somehow), and I'm leaving him on the bench.

Peter Thomson, a five-time winner of the British Open and the only golfer in the 20th century to win the tournament for three straight years, has died. He was 88. Thomson had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease for more than four years and died at his Melbourne, Australia, home surrounded by family members on Wednesday morning, Golf Australia said. The first Australian to win the British Open, Thomson went on to secure the title five times between 1954 and 1965, a record equaled only by American Tom Watson. The Australian’s wins came in 1954, ’55, ’56, again in 1958 and lastly in 1965 against a field that included Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus. Only Harry Vardon, with six titles between

Monday marked the official announcement that an annual PGA tour event will take place in Minnesota, but there's still a ton of planning and work ahead. Here's what's known so far about the 3M Open: The tournament will be held at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine. It will be stretched out to about 7,600 years for the professionals with some initial work starting in August, according to Hollis Cavner, the CEO of Pro Links Sports.

Green was a dominant force during the 1970s and 1980s when he won 19 times on the PGA Tour, including at the 1977 U.S. Open and 1985 PGA Championship, and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007. "He was perhaps best known for his win at the 1977 U.S. Open, where he received a death threat during the round, but continued on and ultimately captured the title," Hall of Fame President Jack Peter said on the shrine's website on Wednesday.

Curtis Strange is looking forward to a highly competitive Ryder Cup in September when Europe and the United States renew their rivalry. Tyrrell Hatton, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood and Francesco Molinari have amassed the most points on the European Tour so far, with Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Alex Noren and Matt Fitzpatrick occupying the other automatic berths.

Notes on a golf scorecard while figuring what I might reasonably shoot at Shinnecock Hills under U.S. Open conditions (I’m thinking 157) … … The USGA can’t seem to get anything right when it comes to the U.S. Open. Last year, American golf’s governing body made the setup at Open newbie Erin Hills too easy with 60-yard wide fairways, anticipating strong wins that never blew. The result: Brooks Koepka shot an un U.S. Open-like 16-under par to win, and 31 golfers broke par. This past week at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Koepka became just the seventh repeat champion in tournament history and first since Curtis Strange in 1988-89 with a 1-over 281. In between, though, the USGA was criticized for making

In a major shakeup in the women’s college golf world, USC coach Andrea Gaston has accepted an offer to become the new head coach at Texas A&M. Gaston, who informed her players of her decision Monday night, has been one of the most successful coaches over the past two decades, leading the Trojans to three NCAA titles and producing five NCAA individual champions during her 22-year reign. This year was arguably Gaston’s most impressive coaching job.
