Charley Hoffman Tosses Putter In Water At #13 Players Championship

Charley Hoffman was having a bad round and it got even worse when he missed a 20-inch putt on #13 during the 2nd Round of The Players Championship and decided to toss his putter into the adjacent water. We`ve all been there right during a bad round and wanted to do the same thing Charley did, most of us hold back because dammit putters aren`t cheap. I`m thinking Charley probably wishes he didn`t throw his putter in but a spur of the moment decision and some lady is fishing it out a few minutes later and is was a Scotty Cameron. Fans of Scotty Cameron will not be happy as I`m sure Scotty himself.


"I had thoughts of diving in front of it," caddie Miguel Rivera said. "I did actually think about going in, but the water looked a little funky."
Hoffman declined comment after he shot 11-over 83 in the second round and badly missed the cut at 15 over. He was 7 over when he reached the par-3 13th and needed a few birdies to make it to the weekend.

Do you have video of the Lady fishing the putter out of the water? She is my wife.
