Bryson DeChambeau had a meltdown every golfer knows all too well during The Open at Carnoustie last week.
After a disappointing opening round of 75 at Carnoustie, DeChambeau decided to go for a late-night range session on Thursday but he ended up working himself into more of a fury.
The American – nicknamed the ‘mad scientist’ due to his unusual approach to golf – theatrically broke down in despair on the driving range during practice as he looked to polish off his game ahead of his next round.

Video footage has emerged of the world No 23 throwing his clubs to the floor, sinking to his knees, putting his head in his hands and leaning disconsolately against a temporary staircase before walking off to collect his equipment from the range.
Despite his poor opening day in Scotland, DeChambeau rallied to make the cut before finishing tied 51st on four over par.
The talented 24-year-old, who turned professional in 2016, has enjoyed a much smoother time this week after taking a 36-hole lead at the Porsche European Open.
DeChambeau carded an opening round of 66 before shooting 68 on day two in Hamburg.

The American’s meltdown isn’t the only time he has garnered plenty of attention. Dechambeau has a unique style and philosophy that gets everyone talking.
At the Travelers Championship recently, DeChambeau walked the course with a compass, marking hole locations in his greens book.
After this news emerged, he revealed that he had already been using a compass for two years.
Furthermore, all of the golfer’s irons and wedges are all cut to exactly the same length of 37.5 inches.
For years, DeChambeau has challenged the norms. He was a physics major at Southern Methodist University, and he has used an analytical and scientific approach to gain an advantage since turning professional.
