I don't think that Phil's collapse compares to Van de Velde at Carnoustie. Phil bogeyed a hole that many others had failed to par. Van de Velde tripled a hole that no one else tripled.

Unfortunately, Mickelson's breakdown came at the most inopportune time. This was also the championship he said that he most wanted to win. It was a very sad sight to see him after the round was over.

ronmon,

That's just a ridiculous comparison. Phil M is the #2 ranked player in the world; regarded by many as the Great Hope against Woods. His stated desire is to win majors. The #2 player blowing a two shot lead with three to play at the US Open?; a double-bogey on number 18 with a one shot lead? One of the worst collapses in major championship history. It ranks with Norman in '96 at Augusta. Players of their caliber are held to a higher standard. Who had heard of Van de Velde? Has he been heard from since?
