Charl Schwartzel Breaks 6-Iron In Anger During First Round of the British Open at Muirfield #Snap

So this year’s Open Championship at Muirfield started out by Thomas Bjorn breaking a camera lens.  Hey, at least it wasn’t intentional.

Then there’s Charl Schwartzel who also broke something during Thursday’s first round- except that with Charl, it was intentional.

Following three consecutive bogeys heading into the 15th hole, Charl hardcore spiked his 6-iron into the firm turf as the club instantly snapped in two and bounced well up into the air.  Hey, we’ve all done similar things in frustration before, just not on national television.

Check out the video below and see for yourself.

Charl fired a first round 4-over 75 and will need a solid round Friday just to make the cut.
