It's a rough week for Mickelsons/Michelsons.

First Phil (Mickelson) is being investigated for insider trading at the same time he's going for the career grand slam and now Landon (Michelson) is getting disqualified from that same event Phil will be playing in.

On Monday Landon Michelson showed up as an alternate for the US Open sectional qualifier in Vero Beach, Fla. Freddie Jacoboson was a no-show so Michelson got in the tournament and shot 71-71 to qualify for a two-man playoff that could have sent him to Pinehurst.

One problem: He signed for a 70 in one of those rounds. He ended up turning himself in and thus disqualifying himself for the US Open.

"You can say it was the only thing to do, but I could have easily have said nothing and I'd be playing in the U.S. Open at Pinehurst," said Michelson to Golfweek.

That's pretty rough stuff for the Rice student who, ironically, did a report on Blayne Barber disqualifying himself from Q-School in 2012.
