Mickelson apologizes for hitting moving ball

NEW YORK—Phil Mickelson has apologized four days after intentionally violating golf rules by hitting a moving ball on the green at the U.S. Open, saying his frustration got the best of him.

The apology came yesterday in a statement released by his representatives.
