Emiliano Grillo with the no-look club toss at Bay Hill’s 6th in the Palmer Invitational

Emiliano Grillo performed the rare no-look club toss into the lake around which the par-5 sixth at Bay Hill in Orlando rolls.

Playing in the third round of the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational, Grillo took a quadruple-bogey 9 on the hole that included the casual club throw into the water after he was disgusted with his sixth shot on the hole.

Grillo started the hole with a tee shot in the fairway, but then he placed his second shot to the green into the water. He dropped for 3, hitting 4, which then also found the water. After a drop for 5, he hit his sixth shot and threw the offending club in the water. Grillo's sixth shot actually found land, some 20 yards from the hole. However, from there, a chip and two putts were needed to get the ball in the hole.

The Argentinian is now 6 over par on his round and plummeting down the leaderboard.
