Henrik Stenson breaks his driver in anger at BMW Championship (Video)
Henrik Stenson won the Deutsche Bank Championship a week ago. His success did not carry over to the BMW Championship, where Stenson finished with a final round score of 74 on Monday and 1-under for the tournament — more than 10 shots off the lead. Fortunately his weekend is over, so he will no longer be needing the driver that he smashed.
Stenson slammed his driver into the ground so hard on the 18th hole that the head came flying off. I’d like to think he knew he wouldn’t be needing it for the rest of the day, otherwise he wouldn’t have risked breaking it.
It was a frustrating weekend for the Swede, but at least he pulled off a win last week. If he didn’t break a club after quadruple-bogeying 18 to lose a first-round lead at the Masters, he probably could have done without the outburst on Monday.
