The 48-year-old failed to muster a single point for his side as the Americans fell to a 17.5 – 10.5 defeat to Team Europe in France.
Mickelson’s torrid week was topped off as he practically handed the Europeans victory with a scuffed tee-shot into the water at the par-three 16th in the Sunday singles.
And the San Diego-born sore loser has vowed to never play in a course as “brutal” as that again.
He moaned: “The fact is, they had brutal rough — almost unplayable — and it’s not the way I play. I don’t play like that.
“I’m going to play courses that are playable and that I can play aggressive, attacking and make a lot of birdies – the golf I like to play.”
Mickelson was one of captain Jim Furyk’s four wildcards going into the Paris spectacular — but started woefully alongside partner Bryson Dechambeau in the Friday foursomes.
The U.S. pair were convincingly beaten 5&4 by Sergio Garcia and Alex Noren — a result so bad that Furyk decided to leave out Mickelson for the entirety of the Saturday sessions.
Mickelson added: “The Europeans did the opposite of what we do when we have the Ryder Cup here.
“The fairways were 14 to 16 yards wide.
“Ben Hogan, who was the greatest ball striker of all time, had a five percent margin of error.
WHINGING Phil Mickelson has branded this year’s Ryder Cup a “waste of time” after his dismal showing for Team USA at Le Golf National.
