TPC Sawgrass has been a brutally difficult test this week with unpredictable weather and Matt Wolff's frustrations showed on the 18th hole on day four where we saw him chuck his club into the lake.

The 18th hole at the Players Championship has seen 50 golf balls find the water already this week and Wolff added a golf club to that total after flaring his approach out well right of the green.

Watch Wolff's club toss below:

Wolff doubled the 18th hole after finding water off the tee, meaning he lost both a ball and a club in the lake guarding the dogleg-left finisher. He carded an 81 (+9) to comfortably miss the cut.

The American ranks 39th in the world and is somewhat lagging behind the shining stars of Morikawa and Hovland whom he turned pro at a very similar time to. His maiden PGA Tour title came at the 2019 3M Open whilst another highlight came at the 2020 US Open where he was runner-up to Bryson DeChambeau.
