Dutch professional Joost Luiten experienced a unique and frustrating occurrence on the golf course during the DP World Tour Championships in Dubai. After making a bogey, Luiten threw his driver at a tree in frustration, only to have it become stuck in the branches. In an attempt to retrieve the driver, he threw another club, which also got caught in the tree. Despite his efforts to jump and hit the tree with a standard bearer’s sign, Luiten was ultimately unsuccessful in dislodging his clubs from the tree.
As a tournament official tried to dislodge the clubs with sticks, Luiten continued his efforts by launching a third club at the tree, resulting in the loss of yet another club in the process. Eventually, a volunteer was able to rescue the lodged equipment and Luiten finished the championship with a three-over-par score, placing third from the bottom.
