Henrik Stenson vented his anger at the bat after hitting the green but lost the bunker on the 15th par4 hole in the final round of the PGA Championship on May 23.

This hole is 466 yards long. Stenson plays 304 yards down the right side of the fairway. 166 yards from target, he hit a second shot but the ball hit the bunker on the left of the green. After the unsatisfactory handling phase, the golfer born in 1976 quietly stuck the head of the iron into the ground, so strong that it broke in half.
