Golf is a frustrating game and during the very first round of The Masters that frustration was on display, with Matt Wolff showing his disgust at a tee shot as he snapped his club with a rather satisfying twang.

The 22-year-old had started his first round at Augusta National poorly, with a double-bogey at his opening hole being followed by a bogey at the par-5 2nd and the par-4 3rd.

Now four-over-par through three, Wolff came to the difficult par-3 4th, with his tee shot leaking right and finding the greenside bunker. Obviously frustrated at the shot, as well as his start, anger got the better of the 22-year-old, with Wolff leaning and pushing his club into the ground and snapping the shaft just below the grip.

Following his moment of anger, he did go onto save his par at the par-3, before another par followed at the 6th.

This isn't the only club-related incident that has occurred with Wolff in the last month. At The Players Championship, the American threw his club into the water at the 18th hole at TPC Sawgrass after flaring his approach well right of the green.

Currently, the American ranks just inside the top-50 in the world. However, in his last six starts on the PGA Tour, he has missed three cuts, with his best finish being a T60 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
