Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes, which begins with a ‘meltdown’ from the usually very level-headed Zach Johnson.
Struggling at the Dean & Deluca Invitational en route to a five-over-par 75 on Saturday, the two-time major champion allegedly ‘dumped all of his clubs out of his bag’ after being put on the clock.

A day later, Johnson addressed what had happened and admitted it ‘wasn’t his proudest moment’.
Not my proudest moment yesterday. Putter was stuck, yanked it out, many clubs came out, frustrated for sure. Tap in double. Ugh.— Zach Johnson (@ZachJohnsonPGA) May 28, 2017
But a few people weren’t having Johnson’s explanation.
stuck putter pulled 5 other clubs out?? Bro, you have a staff bag, not a Sunday bag. Nice try.— Matt Turner (@maturner05) May 29, 2017
Come on Zach. You are better than that. Just admit you had a temper tantrum, acted like a child and learned your lesson. Puter was stuck?— David Hutton (@Fattoadthuglife) May 28, 2017
I know how it's sometimes so tough to remove a putter from those tight & tiny staff bags Image if you paid someone to hand you your clubs?— Ernie B. Lowsbert (@baldjoe) May 28, 2017
Johnson will be heading to Erin Hills in a couple of weeks for the 117th US Open. Players have already headed to the Wisconsin venue for a scout around and Wesley Bryan gave a glimpse of just how thick the rough is going to be…
Ian Poulter made the most of his time back in the UK – by listening to some of his old CDs while working out.
And by taking a trip to Costco, of course.
With the #FindRickieAGirl social media campaign finally over, it’s now changed to #RickFoundAChick, after he uploaded this picture to Instagram with new girlfriend Allison Stokke.
Ahead of the final round of the BMW PGA Championship, Excel Sports Management clients Haotong Li and Pablo Larrazabal came up with a unique side bet to make their final round more interesting.
The loser had to bow to the other - and it was Haotong Li that lost.

We're sure you've already seen this already, but you can't not love this brilliant European Tour video who helped surprise nine-year-old Aaron with the 'best birthday gift ever'.
