Guessing they didn’t birdie the 18th.
Two men in South Africa took their frustrations out on each other in a wild golf course brawl that has gone viral. The video, which is from a fundraising event for a local school, gets straight into it with men throwing heavy punches before one of the men has his shirt pulled off his back.
The shirtless man then pulled out the flag and started hitting the other man with it. The other man then charges his rival before the tempers settled down.
Not to mention that it was at the final hole of a fundraising event for a local school.
South African publication Times Live confirmed the men were drunk.
“From the video you can see that both were incredibly wobbly on their feet,” course manager Deon Kruger said.
The argument reportedly started over the accusation of a stolen phone and quickly went viral.
The MyBookie Sportsbook Twitter account shared the video and it was approaching 800,000 views.
One of the golfers found a phone in the rough on the 17th after hearing it ringing and picked it up before being accused of being a thief.
“The golfers were playing 18 holes. A player on the 18th hole had lost his phone and when he called it a golfer on the 17th hole answered it,” Kruger told Times Live.
“There was a heated exchange of words and a rumpus when the players approached each other. This whole thing comes down too much alcohol and the players, who until then had been well-behaved, drinking on the course.
“We do not condone nor allow drinking on the course but some players, like these, had snuck alcohol on to the course and were drinking while playing. The drinking resulted in this very unfortunate incident.”
The organizer of the event was embarrassed as the day was to raise money for the Laerskool Vryheidsmonument in Vereeniging and said it was “terrible” and “embarrassing.”
The participants weren’t parents of children at the school.
“We have no idea who they are,” she said.
