Phil Mickelson hasn't putted very well during the first two rounds of the U.S. Open. He opened the tournament using a claw putting grip only to ditch that after 18 holes and roll with a traditional grip in the second round. Nothing he has tried has worked, but even when he appears to hit a solid putt, he isn't catching many breaks. Like at No. 14 when his putt lipped out despite being halfway down.
Sometimes, that's just the way it goes.
