Henrik Stenson breaks club in frustration at British Open

It's getting to the point where clubs are not safe around Henrik Stenson.

Stenson destroyed his club in frustration during his first round at the British Open on Thursday after landing his ball in the rough on No. 17. The next attempt to get the ball out of the rough failed miserably as well, prompting Stenson to take the club to his knee Bo Jackson style.

By the way, Stenson finished the round at even par, six shots off of the lead.
