We all know that golf is a frustrating game, and as you’ve seen above, it definitely gives us plenty of opportunities to unleash some anger when things don’t go the way we want them to. The good news is that the pros feel the exact same way, and while it might not be fun when you feel the need to fire a club or ball into the lake, it’s bloody entertaining when you watch someone else do it.
Below are the moments from 2013 that proved that even the best players in the world feel the need to rage from time to time. If you hover over each image, you’ll get a brief description of why it made the list.
