Strop alert! Six of the best CLUB SNAPS of all time in pro golf

Temper tantrums are quite frequent in amateur golf but when they do happen in pro golf they can provide us with some comfort.

That comfort being that even the best players in the world are prone to lashing out at a golf club. Sometimes golf clubs just need to die. 

Rory McIlroy let his frustrations get the better of him at the 2022 Arnold Palmer Invitational when he snapped his wedge. 

The day before, a fan recorded him as he strutted off a green at Bay Hill and told him: "Not today, Rory. You gotta make those putts". 

It's fair to say that probably that moment - along with a tough weekend course setup - had ruffled his feathers. 

A dejected McIlroy later claimed he felt "punch drunk" and told how it felt like he was playing "crazy golf". 

In the same tournament, PGA Tour pro Matt Jones two-arm shot putted his putter into a lake. Sometimes clubs just need to die. 

It got us here at GolfMagic thinking, what are some of the best club snaps we have ever seen?
