Is Grillo The Heir Apparent To Sergio (In Club Throwing)?

The artist's reluctance suggests an apprehension that never plagued the Picasso of petulance and Rembrandt of rage, Tommy Bolt.

Let's face it, Rory McIlroy has unleashed some gems but his heart never seemed committed to club throws.

With Sergio Garcia now engaged and seemingly mellowed out from his best works, could Emiliano Grillo be positioning himself as our next great hope?

The justification for the toss which, in this reviewers mind, showed originality and flair.

Grillo is on par with McIlroy. Both exhibit a nonchalance and a lack of anger, just a matter-of-fact disposing of a misbehaved golf club.

I don't think the caddy has a clue that the club is gone.

When Bolt threw a club, he was yelling at the rest of the bag - see what happens if you misbehave!!!. Don't see that here.

What about John Daly?

I wonder how throwing a club correlates to tournament performance? I'm guessing the win rate of club throwers has to be very low.

This punk has a lot of growing up to do. What a disgusting display by a spoiled brat. The parents clearly didn't get the job done with this greaseball.

Hey Justin. Looks like your parents didn't do so great either. They finished up with a racist spoiled brat.
Good effort that.

@KG.

What? He threw John Daly,too!! That's amazing core strength, right there.

I'd rather they through them into the water than into the crowd

Or threw even!

I thought he held on a bit too long. Cost him points from the Russian judge.

I little flat on the entry as a result. I'd give him an 8 for execution.
The Russian judge is big on that bit
