Drama hit the fourth round of the Open at Lytham when overnight leader Ian Woosnam suffered a two shot penalty on the second tee.
Six under par overnight he fired his tee shot at the par-3 first hole to within inches of the cup for a tap-in birdie and a share of the lead with Niclas Fasth of Sweden.
As he walked to the second tee, chief referee John Paramor noticed 15 clubs in his bag - one more than the legal limit.
The Rules state that for every hole played with an extra club a player is penalised two shots.
So as Woosnam hurled his 3-wood to the ground as he was advised his score was now -5 instead of -7.
The atmosphere was tense as he strode up the second fairway muttering to his caddie - " I give you a job to do and you can't do it."
