After two-time European Tour winner Haotong Li threw his putter into a pond during the first round of the French Open, his mum attempted to do the right thing and retrieve it.

However, she got a bit of a surprise. As she waded with trepidation towards the putter in the mucky water, she finally got her hands on it – only to realise that her son had snapped it in two.

The trio of Alex Noren, Tyrrell Hatton and Thomas Pieters – playing two groups behind Li – were on the green at the time of her retrieval mission, and subsequently burst into laughter upon the discovery.

Take a look at the video here.

Lets hope Li has something up his sleeve to make it up to his mum for going to the trouble!
