From clubs snapped in frustration to humbling tee shots, here’s a collection of moments you may have missed during The Open Championship.

The 151st Open Championship has been a treat for viewers who adoringly watch golfer’s imaginations be put to the test thanks to the rugged nature of a links golf course, and it delivered its fair share of replay-worthy moments during Friday’s second round.

18’s Internal out of Bounds Claims Another Victim in Tyrrell Hatton

Hoylake’s 18th hole has already caused trouble for a few golfers; Rickie Fowler recorded an 8, Justin Thomas recorded a 9, and Taichi Kho left his mark on the hole with a 10. The latest victim of the hole happened to be a golfer with our favorite viral reactions: Tyrrell Hatton.

The English player hit his first and second tee shots out-of-bounds, with the third attempt sent way left. He would eventually go on to leave a putt one foot short, then tap in for a quadruple-bogey 9.

Can’t say we haven’t all been there once (or, every other weekend).

Hatton’s round may have finished on a sour note, but his lead going in to the 18th was comfortable enough for his 9 to keep him one shot clear of the +3 cut. And, in typical Hatton fashion, he made sure to let the hole know exactly how he felt before walking off the course.

We’d hate to see what the putter would have been used for if he didn’t make the cut.

Shane Lowry Snaps Club on 16 at Open Championship

After a frustrating approach shot on Hoylake’s 16th hole, Irishman Shane Lowry lifted his iron behind his neck, seemingly taking a deep breath of frustration. That was, until, he proved to be the course’s strongest man and snapped it in half, all while still behind his neck. I have to admit, the move seemed to be a great stress reliever- if only I had the upper body strength to do so (or deep enough pockets to replace an iron with every bad shot).

Unfortunately, the 2019 Open winner will not be going into the weekend after following up his opening round 72 with a 77 and missing the +3 cut.

Jon Rahm’s Hot Mic Moment on 10

While we were robbed of a hot mic moment from Tyrrell Hatton on 18, production couldn’t mute Jon Rahm’s fast enough after an unfortunate lip out on 10 gave him his second bogey of the day.

Now, this is one display of frustration I could easily pull off after my next bad shot.

Scottie Scheffler Stays Clutch at Open Championship

Scottie Scheffler’s second round looked about as frustrating as many of his peers, entering the 18th with six bogeys and sitting at 4-over on the leaderboard. While he still had a chance to make the cut, his chances looked less than likely as his second shot found a pot bunker. But the World No. 1 wouldn’t go down that easy.

In a replay and envy-worthy clip, Scheffler nearly holed out of the bunker for eagle, but settled for birdie and a made cut right on the nose. Talk about clutch under pressure.
