PGA Tour pro Keith Mitchell was disgusted with his tee shot just as the buzzer went to call play for the day at The Players Championship.

PGA Tour pro SMASHES driver into tee box just as buzzer goes at The Players!

PGA Tour pro Keith Mitchell smashed his driver into the turf as his ball sailed into the water while the buzzer sounded to call play for the day in the second round of The Players Championship.

Mitchell was teeing off the 5th tee, his 14th hole of the round, when he sprayed his tee shot way to the right. 

Once the ball was on its way to the water, Mitchell slammed his driver into the turf just seconds before the buzzer sounded to suspend play for the day. 

"Did it cover?" Mitchell is heard saying to his caddie John Limanti. 

"It did not," Limanti confirmed. 

"It went in the water?"


Mitchell then looked at the huge divot he placed in the turf, before walking away to the left side of the tee box to contemplate life.


Mitchell is currently level par for the second round and level par for the tournament. 

But given his current predicament when he returns on Saturday morning, he certainly won't be on that score for much longer. 

The cut line is expected to fall at 2-over par, but it could stretch to 3-over par depending on conditions in the morning. 

Players will return to the course at 7am local time, with the third round starting approximately half an hour after the completion of the second round.

Rory McIlroy has plenty of work to do in the morning at 6-over par for the tournament.

The World No.3 has just eight holes left to play when he returns. 

Canada's Adam Svensson and South Africa's Christiaan Bezuidenhout currently lead the way on 8-under par, and both players still have a number of holes left to complete in their second round. 

Collin Morikawa and Scottie Scheffler are hot on their heels at 6-under par and 5-under par respectively.

Mitchell's strop wasn't the only one we've seen this week, as Shane Lowry lost his head in the trees in the first round.
