FORT WORTH, TX - MAY 25: Zach Johnson plays his shot from the sixth tee during Round One of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational at Colonial Country Club on May 25, 2017 in Fort Worth, Texas. © Stacy Revere/Getty Images FORT WORTH, TX - MAY 25: Zach Johnson plays his shot from the sixth tee during Round One of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational at Colonial Country Club on May 25, 2017 in Fort Worth, Texas. Zach Johnson didn't come into this week's Dean and Deluca Invitational in the best vein of form, but his history at Colonial Country Club is so stupidly good (T-17, T-19, 73, 3, 1, 4, 1, T-9 every year since 2010), that he no-doubt thought he could turn things around this week.

But, unfortunately for ZJ, it wasn't to be. He followed an opening round 67 with back-to-back 75s, leaving him near the tail-end of the leaderboard. Then, to make matters worse, a picture began circulating from his third round appearing to show the aftermath of a temper tantrum from Johnson, ordinarily one of the coolest heads on tour.

Johnson, a class-act in every sense of the word, didn't pull any punches the following day. From his official account, he called the episode "not his proudest moment."

Don't worry, ZJ, it happens.
