Zac Blair admitted on Twitter that he let his emotions get the better of him during the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Blair missed a birdie putt on the par-five fifth hole on Friday and proceeded to hit his putter against his head in frustration, causing the putter to bend.

Blair alerted a rules official to the situation on the next hole and was disqualified.
