“I am still in shock that I did that. I just can’t believe that I did that,” Mickelson said (here) after blowing a one-shot lead on the final hole after slicing his tee shot and hitting a tree with his second. “I’m such an idiot.”

2. Ivan Meisel, Open Will be remembered for Mickelson’s collapse: “The biggest reason why this is so disappointing is that this is a tournament that I dreamt of winning as a kid, that I spent hours practicing — I mean, countless hours practicing, dreaming of winning this tournament, came out here weeks and months in advance to get ready and had it right there in my hand, man. It was right there and I let it go.”

3. Steve Keating, Old-bad days return to haunt anguished Mickelson: “Leading Australia’s Geoff Ogilvy by a shot as he stepped onto the 18th tee, Mickelson stood on the brink of history poised to join Tiger Woods and Ben Hogan as the only men to win three consecutive majors since the legendary Bobby Jones. With the record books beckoning, Mickelson faltered, unleashing a wild drive that bounced off the roof of the hospitality tent into the crowd before ending in a double-bogey and another runner-up finish.”
