“Giant dumpster fire of a finish yesterday.”

That’s what Chesson Hadley had to say about his final-round performance Sunday at the Palmetto Championship. Looking for his first PGA Tour win since the 2014 Puerto Rico Open, the 33-year-old began the day with a four-shot lead and ended his round at Congaree Golf Club in Ridgeland, South Carolina, with three consecutive bogeys to sign for a 4-over 75 and finish T-2 at 10 over, one shot behind winner Garrick Higgo.

How did he deal with the defeat? By going to Bojangles, of course.

On Monday morning the 2014 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year took to Twitter to react to his performance, have a little fun at his own putter’s expense and shoutout a sponsor.

Hadley has represented Bojangles, a fast-food restaurant that’s popular in the Southeastern United States, since 2014 and rocks its logo on his shirt collar. One could say he got a thigh of his own supply after the round.

“On a more serious note, this week was tremendous for me. It was great to get into the mix again and feel some things I haven’t felt in a while,” Hadley replied to the original tweet. “Thank you to everyone who encouraged and supported me. I am looking forward to getting after it the rest of the year.”
