Golf star Grayson Murray let his frustration boilover on the final day of the US Open after throwing his club and snapping a putter in an angry meltdown.

Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick won his maiden US Open just one stroke ahead of Will Zalatoris and Scottie Scheffler.

NOT HAPPY: Rory McIlroy explodes in wild tantrum at US Open

However, on the other end of the table, Murray was suffering a horror US Open final round and it showed when he lost his cool twice.

Murray was putting for a double bogey on the 7th when he narrowly missed.

This prompted the American to launch his putter into the rough.

And he was seen searching for his putter in the long grass afterwards.

Not long after, Murray took it one step further.

Murray was sitting at +15 when his shot found the rough.

The American took his frustration out on the club and bent it across his knee.

Golf fans were quick to react to the angry meltdown.

Murray wasn't the only one to get frustrated at the difficult conditions at The Country Club in Brookline.

In the opening round, Rory McIlroy had covered his first 13 holes in two under par before a pushed tee shot on the fifth finished in thick rough on the edge of a bunker.

This left him struggling to take a stance in the sand, with the ball well above his feet.

From there, McIlroy could only hack his second shot into another bunker a few yards in front of him, prompting a furious reaction which saw him twice slam his club into the sand.

Matt Fitzpatrick wins US Open

Fitzpatrick won the year's third major in remarkable scenes.

The 27-year-old arrived at the final hole one shot clear of Zalatoris and Masters champion Scheffler, who was already in the clubhouse at five under, but sent his tee shot into a fairway bunker to set up a nervy finish.

From there, Fitzpatrick delivered a clutch shot that reached the green and two-putted from 18 feet to seal the biggest win of his career.

It marked the second time Fitzpatrick had tasted success at the challenging venue outside Boston where he also won the 2013 US Amateur that kick-started his career.

Zalatoris, the PGA Tour's reigning rookie of the year, sent his birdie chance at the last just past the left side of the cup to finish runner-up at a major for the third time after falling short at the 2021 Masters and last month's PGA Championship.
