Golfer’s Mom Wades Into Water Hazard to Retrieve Her Son’s Putter (Video)
Chinese golfer Li Haotong is going to have to buy his mom a pretty huge bouquet of flowers to make up for this one.
After bogeying the par 3 11th at the HNA French Open in Paris on Thursday, the 21-year-old European Tour card holder decided he’d had enough of his insolent putter. So he snapped it over his knee and threw it into the pond, like you do.
About 20 minutes later, along came Li’s mom. Apparently unaware that her son broke his club before throwing it into the drink, she rolled up the legs on her pants and waded into the pond to retrieve it. The players putting on the 11th green just stood there and looked on in utter disbelief as she reached for the club handle, only to discover that it was missing the head.
Take a look:
“Don’t do it, madam! Don’t DO it!” has to be one of the greatest calls in the history of golf.
Seriously, Haotong, you owe your mom for this.
