Phil Mickelson has been a trainwreck during the first round of the U.S.Open.

Mickelson started out the first six holes with a 5-over score and it didn't get any better with the next four holes. He's currently 6-over par with only a few holes left.

He's in serious danger of not making the cut at this event, but he does have eight holes left for today's round and then 18 holes tomorrow to get himself back in it.

Fans have definitely noticed that Mickelson is way off his game on Thursday.

 This is only Mickelson's second event in the last handful of months. He played in the inaugural LIV Tour event last week before joining the field for the U.S. Open.
