its why I love the game, the ups and down, the passion, joy . . . . . best comment so far:

"It happens from time to time, I've seen a few clubs go flying on the course. I actually ended up with a sand wedge because a guy obviously having a terrible game threw it and when I went to return it to him, he said "keep the piece of $%#&!"

If one was a normal tour pro and not the World's number 1 golfer, I doubt Donald Trump would hire a diver to pick up the club for him ...

A Journalist asked Rory's caddy what club did he threw into the sea, the Caddy replied that it was Nike! Laughing

That was not the first time the World's number 1 golfer displayed such unsportman-like tantrum ... If you remember, he broke his 9 iron once due to frustration (not a good role model for the young aspiring golfers) ...

One can throw some verbal tantrums on course, but should never never throw a club... Sure, it is a moment of folly, but it does reflect some undesirable level of mannerisms and personal upbringing...

Wonder if he was given any verbal warning?
PGA doesn't issue shot penalty for such act?

Very unprofessional of him to do that. Can understand the anger but he has to tell himself he is the World No. 1 and many kids out there look up to him. Imagine all the kids throwing their clubs into the water!!!

Nowadays, some golfers also throw the ball into the water if they missed a putt

There was a golfer broke the putter shaft into two when he failed to make a short putt ... I can't remember his name ... He was an old Tour Pro (retired now) with a fast swing tempo from South Africa if I could remember correctly ...

Ben Crenshaw - Ryder Cup 1987 singles. He still did well in the game putting with his iron and wedge losing out only in the final hole though. Very Happy....
