It has been a memorable week for Phil Mickelson at Royal Troon.

On Thursday, the five-time major winner was inches away from the lowest-round in major history. He had to settle with an opening round on 63.

He continued to lead on Friday, before being placed in the final group with Henrik Stenson on Saturday. Both men exchanged the lead on numerous occasions.

The pressure finally seemed to get to the American on the 18th on Saturday when his second shot landed in a greenside bunker. Straight away the former Open champion looked to a cameraman who was close to the action.

"Guys, that is so shitty", Mickelson said. "I can't believe that. I get you got to cover it, but why do you have to interfere with it?"

Mickelson and Stenson continue to battle it out on Sunday afternoon to become the champion.
