Video: Golfer Snaps Putter In Half Over His Knee

John Peterson snaps club over his knee.

We've all been there. You hit a beautiful drive right down the middle of the fairway, float a solid iron to within 20 feet from the pin, then proceed to three put and make bogey.

Golf isn't a fair game. One good shot doesn't mean another will follow.

No one knows that better than John Peterson, who has been vocal about his displeasure with the tour in the past. A participant, Peterson is fighting to keep his PGA Tour status alive but it's not going well.

Peterson took the course for the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship this week. After struggling to find his rhythm, he decided his putter was to pay the ultimate price.

On No. 15, Peterson three-putted, his third three-putt in the previous four holes. He then proceeded to snap his putter in half over his knee.

We've all been there. Whether it's slamming a drive on the teebox or digging into the earth with an iron, frustration can be shown in many ways on the golf course.

Peterson finished the round by putting with his 52-degree wedge. He carded a first-round four-over 75.
