Sergio Garcia had to putt with his 3 wood after breaking his putter in frustration

Sergio Garcia had a rough day on the golf course.

During the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship, Garcia found himself frustrated with a poor putt at the fourth hole. After a great shot off the tee left him in a position to putt for eagle, but his stroke left the ball well short of the hole to a point where he’d have to make a solid shot to hold on to a birdie.

In anger, he thrust his putter into the ground, bending it in the process.

With his putter unusable, Garcia was left to finish the hole and the round through alternative means. To finish up at the fourth green, he pulled out his 3 wood and promptly sunk his birdie putt.

Unfortunately, Garcia’s putting luck would end there, as he bogeyed for of the next five holes to finish the day with a four-over round of 75.
