Charl Schwartzel breaks club in anger during British Open (Video)
The 15th hole at Muirfield created quite the hassle for some golfers during the opening round of the British Open on Thursday. We already showed you Rory McIlroy somehow putting his ball into a bunker en route to a double-bogey, and now the hole has claimed one of Charl Schwartzel’s clubs.
Schwartzel had made three straight bogeys heading into 15 when he put his tee shot into the tall grass. His second shot was not much better, which inspired the 2011 Masters champion to throw his 6-iron in anger. It snapped in the process, meaning he will not be able to use it for the remainder of the round.
Like McIlroy, Schwartzel went on to make a double-bogey at 15. Also like McIlroy, he’ll have to play very well on Friday to make the cut.
