VIDEO: Victor Dubuisson stomps on clubs in frustration at BMW Int’l Open


Golf is a frustrating game. (Duh, you all said in reply.) We often do a lot of not-so-good things as frustration boils over and it becomes impossible to hide. Take, for example, what Victor Dubuisson did on Sunday in the final round of the European Tour's BMW International Open in Germany.

After playing partner Michael Hoey putts out, Dubuisson, apparently frustrated about something, stomps several times on his clubs that are lying on the ground in his bag on the 18th hole. Then his caddie picks them up and keeps on moving.

Dubuisson had made bogey on the par-5 finisher to shoot 1-over 73, leaving him in a tie for 20th place. So, the stomps put an exclamation mark on a week that could have been, in the Frenchman's eyes, much better.
