The pro misses the putt – then yells at himself for 40 seconds, throws the ball into the water

Dylan Wu lines up his putt par Sunday on the 10th hole of the TPC Deere Run.

So bad this week.

Absolutely awful all week.

Literally fucking awful, man.

But seriously, Dylan Wu, tell us how you really feel.

We are joking, of course. To be honest, we appreciate being let into your inner monologue after a short missed putt in Sunday’s final round of the John Deere Classic. No, it wasn’t flowery. But it was sincere, and we like that. For about 40 seconds on the par-5 10th at TPC Deere Run, we heard it all.

“Wu is doing a little self-analysis of his putt this week,” the announcer said on PGA Tour Live.

In effect. The streak began after Wu came home in two, missed his eagle putt 6 feet left of the hole, then also missed the birdie effort. He hit his putter head into the green, and we’ll give him the floor from here.


Wu spins around the hole to putt par.

“So bad this week.”

“Absolutely awful all week.”

Wu stands behind his ball, then picks up something off the green and puts it in his pocket.

“Literally fucking horrible, man.

Wu puts his mark behind his ball.


Wu lines up his ball.

“I can’t hit anything with good speed.”

“So awful.”

Wu stands over his ball, makes the putt, then catches his ball in the cup with his left hand, stands up and throws his ball into the water to the right of the green.

“As Wu throws his ball into the water, he doesn’t want to be part of it anymore,” the announcer said on PGA Tour Live.

Wu comes off the green.

He didn’t finish, however.

“Not even close,” he said.
