Watch: Henrik Stenson snaps club over leg after horrible shank
Henrik Stenson was one of a number of golfers who struggled in the tough conditions during the final round of The Open Championship on Sunday, and his emotions got the best of him late in the day.
Stenson’s second shot at the par-4 17th hole was a shank in every sense of the word. After positioning himself perfectly off the tee, he hit the ball off the end of his club and straight into a collection of fans. He then snapped his iron over his leg in frustration.

Stenson, who won The Open back in 2016, rarely shows that much emotion. He’s actually the second player we have seen snap a club over his leg during a major championship this year.
