British Open: Henrik Stenson snaps club in most calm way ever (video)


The British Open has a way of making mortals out of some of the best golfers the world knows. On Thursday it apparently did in one Henrik Stenson on a few occasions. So much so that he decided to take out his frustration on his clubs.

Stenson has had an up and down day overall, with three bogeys or worse and three birdies on the day. It appears that the last of those bogeys finally got the best of Stenson, who bogeyed the par-4 17th hole after a bad shot with his wedge.

That was enough for Stenson to snap mentally and then physically snap his club too.
