Zac Blair must have missed the lesson most golfers get when they start playing the game: Don't bend your putter over your head and then try to play with it.

The rule seems simple enough, but Blair was disqualified from the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club on Friday for bashing his putter over his head, then playing with the altered club.

Just to clarify, Blair was not suspended for the action of bending his club. He was disqualified for playing with a club that no longer conformed to regulation.

Blair, 25, was 4-over-par 76 at the time of his dismissal and issued an apology for his actions.

But mistakes can turn into funny stories sometimes, and Blair certainly found the humor in his situation by poking fun at a former tour pro, Woody Austin, who was also caught bashing himself with his own club.
