You know you're having a bad day when you play a shot and the club ends up going further than the ball.
It's one of those occasions where you'd rather be anywhere other than out on the course in your golf clothing.
But if it's happened to you, then you're in good company. Henrik Stenson and Miguel Jimenez could both be facing fines after being involved in club throwing incidents.
The European Tour appears poised to punish the duo after they decided to part company with one of their clubs in a moment of rage.
Jimenez lost his cool at the Volvo Champions event in Bahrain and threw his putter away in disgust, causing it to break.
And Swede Stenson went one better when he lobbed a wedge over his head and into a lake after a poorly-executed chip on the final hole at the Qatar Masters.
According to a Tour official, the incidents will both be looked into and he expected both players to be fined for "conduct unbecoming a professional".
