VIDEO: Henrik Stenson snaps iron over knee at Open Championship

This isn't the first time and it won't be the last time Henrik Stenson has broken a club in a fit of anger, but it never stops being entertaining.

Stenson was frustrated after hitting a poor shot in the opening round of the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. After the shot, he was walking toward where his ball landed, clearly stewing about the last couple of strikes. Then, out of nowhere, Stenson grabbed the iron he had in his hand and snapped it over his knee.

Stenson will have to play the remainder of the round with 13 clubs, unable to put a replacement into play until Friday's second round.

This isn't uncommon for Stenson to take out his frustrations on his equipment. The Swede snapped his driver at last year's BMW Championship and chucked his wedge into a hazard at the 2011 Dubai Desert Classic.
