Matt Wallace has come under fire by golf fans on social media following his on-course behaviour and treatment of his caddie Dave McNeilly during the final round of the BMW International Open.


Wallace, 29, was seen tossing his clubs into the turf and throwing them around on multiple occasions, on top of hurling what appeared like verbal abuse to his caddie McNeilly when going long at the par-3 12th - a shot that led to a bogey and took Wallace out of a share of the lead at the time.


The four-time European Tour winner needed a birdie up the par-5 18th to force his way into a playoff, but any hopes he had of defending his title were soon sunk after finding the water down the left side. 

Upon walking up to see exactly where his ball had ended up, Wallace looked to once again be fuming with his caddie despite his own errant shot with the driver.

While cameras could not pick up exactly what Wallace had to say to McNeilly, his choice of words did not look particularly pleasant - and it led a number of golf fans to rush to Twitter to express their disgust at what they were witnessing...

















Wallace went on to make a bogey at the final hole to finish in a seven-way tie for third on 13-under par, a result that marks his third top-five finish in his last five tournaments. 

The 29-year-old currently leads the European Tour's Race to Dubai standings and has moved up to a career-high 24th in the world rankings.
