It hasn't been the best of years for Rory Sabbatini. The six-time winner on the PGA Tour has missed seven of 15 cuts, but carded just his second top-10 of the season last week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and came to Merion with high hopes.
Three bogeys over his first six holes didn't do much to make him smile, and on the 7th hole on Thursday at the U.S. Open, Sabbatini had it out with his golf glove.
Now before you go trying this with one of your old, dried out gloves, remember, PGA Tour pros use only the finest of materials to put between them and the grips. While expensive, the gloves are fragile, making it easier to rip apart and look tough.
