Suffice to say Joakim Lagergren loves the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The 27-year-old Swede finished tied third at St Andrews yesterday, continuing an impressive streak that has seen him wind up no worse than tied-12th in four of the last five years.
However, it's not his impressive golf that's dominating conversation this morning. Rather, it's a clip of him on the seventh hole at the Old Course yesterday that has set tongues wagging.
In the clip, posted by the European Tour, Lagergren is seen using a fairway wood to dig up turf to fashion a makeshift tee.
See for yourself...
As you might imagine, Twitter users have mainly reacted angrily to the footage, accusing Lagergren of a lack of respect.
Here's a selection of the replies...

Out of order bet greenkeeper not impressed— weareleeds (@shankerleeds) September 29, 2019
How about giving this a try. Crazy I know but go on try it. No respect to the greenkeepers who spend hours getting the course perfect. pic.twitter.com/0Zawkx5FtT— Jim McMurdo (@jmcmurdo1969) September 29, 2019
Don’t agree with this.....bit of respect needed for the tee box and greenskeepers— Taff4Ever #COYS (@taff4ever) September 29, 2019
Unnecessary and disrespectful— Paul Allen (@paulallen262) September 29, 2019
This is bullshit.— Dean Corbett (@deano7villa) September 29, 2019
Lagergren, it should be noted, is not the only golfer to tee up the ball this way. Laura Davies does likewise.
However, is it disrespectful to greenkeepers who work hard to get the tee boxes in pristine condition and who will be left to repair the damage?
