BROOKS KOEPKA | THOMAS PIETERS

There was a crazy moment early in the first fourballs match on Saturday afternoon when Brooks Koepka’s drive landed on the rucksack… of Thomas Pieters’ dad!


With tees moved up on the par-4 fifth, meaning the hole measured not much more than 300 yards, all players – including Pieters, Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson– went for the green, with Koepka’s an interesting outcome.

And an eagle-eyed Nicolas Colsaerts confirmed on Twitter that it was in fact Pieters’ dad whose rucksack the ball landed on.










Just for good measure, Pieters went on to eagle the hole. Want to see it? Of course you do:
