On Thursday, the world's best golfers took to the course at club De Golf Chapultepec for the WGC-Mexico Championship. Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, among other, headlined the All-Star field for the weekend.

During the opening round, Bryson DeChambeau stole the show - and not in a good way. One of the world's most well-known golfers suffered a disastrous opening round and let his frustrations get the best of him.

Cameras caught DeChambeau slamming his putter into the green, creating a sizable divot. To his credit, DeChambeau then cleaned up the area for future golfers.

Here's video of the incident.

It didn't take long for DeChambeau to announce an apology for his actions during Thursday's round.

He took to Twitter on Friday morning to apologize to the public and the grounds crew.

"I want to apologize to my fans, fellow players and the staff at Chapultepec for my actions following the round yesterday. I am an extremely passionate player and I am always working on ways to be better. I am certainly not perfect but I respect the grounds staff and the game of golf and am focused on working harder on this just like I do on my golf game," he said in a statement on Twitter.

DeChambeau and the rest of the field will be back on the course Friday afternoon.
