In fact, I've never even see anybody do it, and I've been playing 25-30 rounds of golf a year for 10+ years.
Pretty much exactly why I don't buy the story. Whether it be a scratch golfer or a 30 handicap, snapping a wedge because you hit behind the ball is essentially impossible. He got pissed, it's as simple as that
