Reigning Open Champion Henrik Stenson proved on Monday that he might be just as good with a fishing rod as he is with a 3 wood.

Reigning Open Champion Henrik Stenson proved on Monday that he might be just as good with a fishing rod as he is with a 3 wood.

The Swede took to the seas in the Bahamas for a fishing expedition and no one will question whether his big catch is just one big fish tale... because it was caught on video.

Stenson hooked a large fish. Here's the video:

 

 

How about that? Everyone going crazy and Stenson -- "The Ice Man" -- remains as cool, calm and collected as always. Love it.

We're not sure what type of fish Stenson caught, but he did post this pic of a beautiful blue marlin:

John Daly withdrew from the final round of the Allianz Championship after seven holes on Sunday, citing a problem with his sciatic nerve.

John Daly withdrew from the final round of the Allianz Championship after seven holes on Sunday, citing a problem with his sciatic nerve.

Writer Dan Hauser reported on Linksmagazine.com that Daly took back-to-back bogeys on the sixth and seventh holes before throwing his putter into the lake behind the seventh green at Broken Sound out of frustration.

Though there was no video of the putter toss, Hauser did snap this pic where you can see the top of the putter's grip in the lake:

 

 

Daly has a long list of moments through the years where he's let his anger get the better of him on the course.

Here's one from the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, where he zipped an iron into Lake Michigan at the par-3 seventh after sending three tee shots into the water and took a septuple-bogey 10 on his way to a 10-over 82 in Round 2:

Jose Maria Olazabal

In his PGA Tour Champions debut this week, Jose Maria Olazabal hit a thin bunker approach at his closing hole on Sunday only to get an incredibly generous bounce.

Jose Maria Olazabal, a two-time Masters champion and the winning captain for Europe in the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah, made his PGA Tour Champions debut in Boca Raton, Fla., this week.

Olazabal, who turned 51 one week ago, missed a year of action in competitive golf due to a serious bout with arthritis.

Understandably, he was a touch rusty in his return, but this crazy shot on the final hole Sunday was good for a chuckle.

In a bunker on the par-5 18th at The Old Course at Broken Sound, Olazabal thinned his third shot and it sailed well over the green. Luckily for the Spaniard, the ball caromed off the top of a hospitality tent behind the green, shot onto the green and nestled about 10 feet from the hole. He would two-putt to close with a par.

Sueng-Yul Noh

Sueng-Yul Noh came so close to a hole-in-one at Pebble Beach on Sunday that you almost feel bad it didn't go in for him.

There's a reason they call golf "a game of inches."

The latest, cruelest example came at Pebble Beach's 196-yard, par-3 12 hole on Sunday in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Check out the tee shot from Sueng-Yul Noh that looks destined for the bottom of the cup... until it isn't:

Sensational shot and, well, you can't get too upset when you have birdie putts that are no longer in length than your index finger, right?
