No penalty strokes under the USGA Rules, but he cannot use that club again (he was on 18 anyway, so no big deal).

I'm sure the USGA, since this the Open, can fine him though.

I know the PGA Tour hands out fines...for cursing/temper fits/etc.

I get that he's passionate and the 'Captain America' stuff, but his comments regarding feeling dissed about the Ryder Cup pairings (and other things)...hasn't exactly endeared him with his fellow players.

It's past time...that he grows up.

Standing up for the underdog and against bullies...every chance I get.
