Vine: Billy Horschel loses the plot with Chambers Bay greens and then mocks them

The greens at the US Open in Chambers Bay have been heavily criticised over the last few days but few got as angry as Billy Horschel did today.

Henrik Stenson has said it is like putting on broccoli, Rory McIlroy felt the greens were more like cauliflower but Horschel had a less humourous way of displaying his frustration.

The American had birdied three of his first five holes but completely lost it after missing a putt on the sixth hole.

Three holes later, Horschel did a snake dance after a missed birdie chance to illustrate just how much movement his ball made as he rolled it towards the hole.

He ended the day with a par on 18 after his birdie putt slipped pass but he carded a very impressive 67 to end his tournament on four over.
