During Zach Johnson's third-round, 5-over 75, a spectator at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational photographed Johnson’s clubs sprayed along the ground near a green. In the Twitter description, the spectator said Johnson had dumped his clubs after being put on the clock.

Sunday, Johnson acknowledged that he pulled his clubs out of his bag in frustration, but explained it by way of a stuck putter. He did not mention being put on the clock.
Not my proudest moment yesterday. Putter was stuck, yanked it out, many clubs came out, frustrated for sure. Tap in double. Ugh.— Zach Johnson (@ZachJohnsonPGA) May 28, 2017
Johnson closed in even-par 70 to tie for 63rd.
