Pro Golfer's Mom Wades Into Water Hazard To Retrieve His Broken Putter

Li Haotong bogeyed the par-3 11th hole at the French Open today, and in a moment of frustration snapped his putter over his knee and tossed it into a nearby water hazard. A little later, while Li was playing the 13th hole, his mother went into the lake to retrieve the putter:


It appears that Li’s mother did not realize the putter was broken before going into the muck to get it back, as she chucked it right back into the water upon realizing it had been snapped.

Li is either one of those people who never learned to pick up after himself as a kid, or his mother is one of those moms who doesn’t believe anything her son tells her until she confirms it for herself. Mom, I told you, the club is broken! No, it’s in the lake! Either way, Li should probably do something nice for his mom tonight.
