Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 134
G OLF is a gentleman’s game, full of well-heeled contestants whose range of emotions include a slight upturn at the corner of the mouth after a particularly impressive putt, or the quick doffing of a hat as they tap in on Sunday and collect more money than most of us will make in a decade. Which makes it all the more spectacular and eminently watchable when one of them strays from the pack and proceeds to lose his marbles with the world watching. Consider the following professionals as frothing volcanoes or ticking time bombs, and be sure to stay well clear of the blast radius when they hit the release valve: FEATURE – 6 HOT HEADS WHEN Henrik Stenson struggles, his clubs shy away in fear. The contents of his bag are inevitably the victims when the smooth Swede loses his cool. He’s snapped clubs at the British Open, the US Open and the BMW Championship, among many others, while other hardware has ended up in the water or been used to destroy course equipment when things aren’t rolling his way. HENRIK STENSON RAGE GAUGE See the Swede snap in these two videos [top left, and left]. IT’S safe to say there are few PGA Tour pros and fans who get along with Rory Sabbatini. The South African is as well known for his irritability and foul mouth as he is for the golfing ability that once carried him into the world’s top 10. But unlike most of our other top agitators, Sabbatini directs his anger at colleagues, rather than his gear. He’s had a verbal brawl with the normally docile Sean O’Hair over the pace of play at the 2011 Zurich Classic, blasted a teenaged volunteer for marking a miscued drive with an empty drink can at Riviera, had a war of words with Vijay Singh at the 2012 Sony Open and to say that he and Tiger Woods share a standing dislike of each other would be putting it very, very mildly.
