Phil Mickelson has finally apologised — four days after he deliberately hit a moving ball at last week’s US Open to prevent it rolling off the green.

In a text message to a number of American golf writers who he had breezed by without comment at Shinnecock Hills on Sunday, he said: ‘I know this should have come sooner, but it’s taken me a few days to calm down.

‘My anger and frustration got the best of me last weekend. I’m embarrassed and disappointed by my actions. It was clearly not my finest moment and I’m sorry.’
