Tour Pro Tomahawk Throws His Putter Into Woods


Golf can frustrate players of all skill levels, from those who can’t break 100 all the way down to the pros who play for a living.

The latest case in point? Australian pro Terry Pilkadaris. 

Pilkadaris was competing in the Asian Tour’s Panasonic Open India on Thursday when an up-and-down day led his frustrations to boil over. Coming off of back-to-back bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes to put him at 2-over par for the day, Pilkadaris hit a solid shot into the par-3 17th hole. 

When his mid-range birdie putt went begging, Pilkadaris did what many golfers have either done or considered doing when they’re fed up: he tomahawk threw his putter into some nearby woods.

Immediately realizing the error of his ways, Pilkadaris went after the flat stick. It was a good thing he did, too, because he would go on to birdie the par-5 18th hole at Delhi Golf Club to shoot an opening round of 1-over par 73. He enters Friday’s second round in a tie for 53rd place, nine shots back of the leader and with a lot less bottled-up frustration.
