China’s Li Haotong faces the wrath of his mother after she waded into a pond at Le Golf National to retrieve his putter – only to find it had been snapped in half.
Li threw his putter into the water surrounding the 11th green after making a bogey on the par three during the first round of the HNA Open de France on Thursday.
Around 20 minutes later, the 21-year-old’s mother was then pictured wading knee-deep into the water to collect the club, which she appeared surprised to find was no longer in one piece.
