SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – It is not very often that a professional player breaks his putter and is forced to use a 3-wood to putt with, let alone it happening at The Masters.

Si Woo Kim, the world number 49 according to the World Golf Rankings, broke his putter in frustration on the 14th hole after three-putting. He still had four holes left to play which he did and proceeded to putt with a 3-wood.

What is even more impressive is that Kim broke his putter when he was in a tie for 5th place and just three shots off the current leader Justin Rose who is in the clubhouse at seven-under-par.

His following three holes after breaking his putter resulted in back-to-back-to-back two putt pars.
