Zach Johnson is probably the last guy most PGA Tour fans would think to have a meltdown on the golf course, even if things are going poorly. However, the two-time major winner apparently dumped out all of the golf clubs out his bag on Saturday at Colonial Country Club in the Dean & DeLuca Invitational.
Johnson was caught by fan Michael Martin dumping out his bag of clubs after Martin says Johnson was put on the clock in the third round in Ft. Worth, Texas. No matter, the visual evidence is striking: The clubs are all over the ground.

On Sunday morning, Johnson explained why his clubs were all over the ground. He had become frustrated, and, in the process of taking out his putter for a tap-in double-bogey on the 12th hole, a bunch of his clubs came out as well.
Not my proudest moment yesterday. Putter was stuck, yanked it out, many clubs came out, frustrated for sure. Tap in double. Ugh.

Johnson shot his second-consecutive 5-over 75 on Saturday after opening with 3-under 67. Johnson dropped from a tie for 45th place to start the day toward the tail end of the weekend field. He’s ahead of just four golfers heading into Sunday’s final round.
