I donít think it was cheating so much as a complete head stagger.

Cheating is when you contrive to offer yourself an advantage that you didnít gain through playing in accordance with the rules.

While it did look odd as hell and itís not something youíd want to see repeated, a 2-stroke penalty means it will never be advantageous to copy this behaviour, and it should be plenty deterrent for any golfer at any level.

Mickleson contacted officials apparently, explained what he had done and was happy to accept disqualification if that was the outcome, officials decided that a 2 shot penalty was appropriate. Mickleson may be rich and white, he can't really help that. But unlike our own spoilt hollywood brat, Phil takes time with supporters at every tournament to sign autographs and interact. He spent an hour on Sunday doing so, most of us after 18 holes just want to get home.

It was either laziness or a head stagger from big Phil. He was out of the tournament, no chance of winning so it's not as if he was gaining an unfair advantage. As mentioned above the two stroke penalty is enough of a deterrent. Anyone talking otherwise is just talking out of their hole.

A lot of people get viciously carried away about very trivial things when it comes to golf!!

Phil was like +10 at the time who cares??

So from Phil being labelled a cheat to getting stuck into Rory? Ffs lad stick to the topic

I thought Phil's bigger foul was running on the green to catch the moving ball.

He's a big heavy fella so running would leave aberrations.

No, vegan. He's never been the same since he cut his big mop of curly hair.
