Alejandro Tosti was a player we wanted to keep our eye on during his rookie PGA Tour season.
If you weren't aware, the Argentinian golfer has a 'wild boy' reputation.
So much so, he was recently suspended by the Korn Ferry Tour for behavioural problems.
We don't know what Tosti did or was accused of doing, because the Tour refuses to be transparent in this regard.
You might recall Tosti was also one of three players who took an illegal shuttle ride during a KFT event last April and was penalised two shots.
One pro previously suggested some of the tales involving Tosti are not so dissimilar to the rumours that circulated about Patrick Reed's college career.
We are led to believe Tosti is prone to an expletive-laden outburst, particularly when it involves pace of play.
Tosti is in the field for this week's Sony Open and he was playing alongside another rookie, Finland's Sami Valimaki, and Taiga Semikawa
It appears pace of play was an issue overall as not every player in the field completed their first 18 holes in Honolulu.
Cameron Davis, from Australia, held the early lead at 8-under. Tosti was four strokes back after an opening 66.
But it appears that at one point he got so fed up waiting he decided to sit down on one green whilst his playing partners played their approaches.
The moment was captured by @sacoomba.

It reminded us at GolfMagic of the time former Tour player Matt Every decided to sit on a deckchair in the middle of the fairway to make a point about slow play.
If there are no plans to tackle the issue of slow play, why not lean into it? Provide fold-up chairs at convenient points on each hole. The Matt Every Solution™.— Sam Harrop (@sam_golf) June 23, 2023
