It started when a golfer was spotted approaching his ball in the rough, where he then picked it up and moved it just right of the fairway.

For all we know his ball could have been sitting in standing water, or he may have had to take releief, but it's most likely that he just fancied a better lie and angle into the green. It seemed the improved lie didn't help him, as his next shot that was also caught on camera, seemed to go a few yards in front of him and towards the trees.

He clearly wasn't pleased with the result, as he ran over to his ball, picked it up and put it back in its original spot for a mulligan, where he then hit his next attempt down the fairway.

The news crew watching the moment unfold found it hilarious, so check it out for yourself in the clip below:
