Last week's Open Championship provided one of the most dramatic conclusions to the tournament in recent years.

Francesco Molinari eventually came out on top to secure his first major title, finishing two shots clear of the field on -8, largely thanks to a bogey-free final 36 holes.

Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy's excellent efforts on day four saw them finish in a share of second place alongside Americans Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner.

Jordan Spieth blew his lead too, going +5 on his final round after looking like he would be very tough to beat.

And he wasn't the only man from the other side of the Atlantic to suffer at Carnoustie.

Bryson DeChambeau didn't have his most memorable major to date, finishing tied for 51st at four-over-par.

The 24-year-old is building quite the reputation in the game thanks to his two wins on the PGA Tour in the last year.

However, almost a week after the tournament in Scotland finished, DeChambeau has made the news for the wrong reasons.

Rather embarrasingly, he was caught on camera having something of a meltdown while practicing following his opening round 75.

And you can see why he has been nicknamed 'the mad scientist' with this outburst.

It's safe to say he wasn't happy with how he was playing.

DeChambeau's reaction is truly astonishing, and he almost looked on the verge of tears throughout.

In some ways though, it is nice to see a player care so much about his game and performance that when it doesn't go well, it can have such a profound effect on them.


His best days are certainly ahead of him though, and given his successes on the PGA Tour it would be very surprising if he wasn't to get his name on a major title sooner rather than later.

For the mean time though, he will be left wondering what on earth was going through his head when he behaved like that at Carnoustie.
