Hennie missed a 2-footer on 15 (he teed off on 10) and -- not for the first time -- decided to test his flat stick's flotation in the adjacent water hazard. Putted with his lob wedge for the rest of the round (including one jarred downhill 30-footer on 7) and shot 75 to take himself completely out of it.

Those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them! :huh:

Somewhere Daly haters are writing page long diatribes about this guy and his wasted talent.

I'm lost... Is there a video of him throwing his putter into the water? Isn't this a really old video also?

I was thinking the same thing - this video is a few years old, not from this week.

The video was just for the purpose of illustrating Hennie's prior rap sheet. No film of the latest blow-out (that I can find), but I imagine it looked something like this -- from the 2006 Dunhill Champs:

Well, he got himself a new putter and shot a course-record 62 today -- so flipping burgers probably isn't on the menu for the moment!

He must have meant BUY A McDonald's. Like, buy some franchises.

Must have been it.  Had to be.

a couple of outdated hybrids
shovel-ier shovels
