Watch furious golfer Van Rooyen BREAK club on tee marker after water shot as Paige Spiranac takes cheeky dig

ERIK VAN ROOYEN furiously smashed his club and tee marker after sending a shot in the water at the PGA Championships.

Fans were left in hysterics when the South African endured a meltdown after botching his shot on Kiaweh Island's notoriously tricky 17th hole.


Van Rooyen, 31, had gone into Friday's session reasonably placed, even par and not far off the lead.

But by the end of the day he'd be in a strop, having not even made the cut for the weekend's action.

Things started to go awry on the 14th hole, as the bogeys began to stack up.

And his anger got the better of him on the 17th, having failed to better a bogey on any of the last four holes.

His key mishap on the devilishly tricky stretch came when he dunked his tee shot agonisingly into the water.

And after it trickled over the edge, Van Rooyen unleashed his frustration on his tee marker, swinging his club at it twice.

On his second swing, the clubhead went flying off, such was the velocity of his frustrated lash.

Unfortunately for Van Rooyen, golf fans online noticed his moment of frustration.

Paige Spiranac wrote: "At least he finally released the club head through impact."

And the No Laying Up podcast added: "After watching 26 straight hours of golf, I did not expect Erik Van Rooyen to give us the moment of the week so far."

Another user replied to Spiranac: "I can’t stop watching this. Oh it is making my morning."

And a fourth tweeter mused: "Maturity and composure are signs of a true Champion. Not sure this qualifies!"

Louis Oosthuizen and Phil Mickelson currently top the leaderboard, sitting five under.

And like Van Rooyen, Rory McIlroy also had a moment to forget earlier this week, when he cracked his ball into 'alligator-infested' waters with his first shot.
