Don’t try this at home!
After hitting a poor second shot on the par-5 fourth hole at Wentworth in today’s second round of the BMW PGA Championship, Belgian star Thomas Pieters took his frustration out on the offending club he’d just used.
Only he didn’t throw it, slam it into the ground, or even break it across his leg.
Instead, he put it behind his head and, well… see for yourself.
I really shouldn’t laugh but this is why I love Thomas Pieters! He’s just so relatable... pic.twitter.com/Jei3FIFpFM— TomRehn9 (@tomrehn9) May 25, 2018
On the one hand, you have to admire the neck strength. Massively impressive.
On the other, you have to think he got lucky that he didn’t do himself a serious injury. Those shafts are razor-sharp when you split them. Besides anything else, breaking clubs isn’t the best example to set.
Still, the reaction to it on social media was predictably entertaining.
