It was obvious all day that the locals were pulling for Phil Mickelson. He was the only player during the U.S. Open to receive enthusiastic chants that had nothing to do with fried chicken.

It's times like these we have to consider what a man has when he can only finish second?

Second place nets around $700,000, which Phil will have to split with Jason Day.

But all it takes is one sound byte to really makes your guts clench.
