Masters 2012 Video: Golf Is Hard, Especially At Augusta National

The overwhelming theme of the first day of the 2012 Masters was frustration. On a day the conditions were ripe for low scores, many of the world's best golfers were left shaking their heads, wondering what happened at Augusta National Golf Club. It seemed like every few minutes, another tee shot was veering off course, into one of the many wooded areas surrounding each hole at the famed course.

And as those shots went left, right and everywhere in between, tempers flared. Thanks to many well-placed microphones, viewers got an inside look at what happens when some of the best golfers in the world aren't quite at the top of their game.

As a public service, we put together a low-light video of angry yells, thrown clubs and bad words.

All the favorites are here: A frustrated Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson with no idea where his ball is going, Henrik Stenson mid-meltdown on No. 18 and Rory McIlroy hitting a tree flush. Pay close attention to the "whoosh" fan during Jason Dufner's tee shot, the excited Houston Cougars fan on No. 12 and the Auburn fan at the end, as well.
