He stands 6-foot-3 and is fairly soft-spoken, so it’s easy to see where Thomas Pieters might have a gentle giant persona. But the 26-year-old native of Belgium gets upset like the rest of us. And when it happens, well let’s just say you don’t want to be a golf club when Pieters starts running hot.
Case in point: Friday at the BMW PGA Championship, when a bad swing with his second shot on the par-5 fourth hole led to this golfer-on-equipment violence.
Move over Bo Jackson breaking a baseball bat over his knee. Thomas Pieters might just have one-upped you https://t.co/DqJm3Uy3DN
