Golf fans react to Viktor Hovland's INTERESTING caddie chat at PGA Championship

Viktor Hovland entered the week at the PGA Championship in arguably the form of his career and was one of the favourites to win his first major.

On Thursday at Kiawah Island, Hovland found himself with an incredibly difficult shot at the par-4 4th hole, which was the young Norwegian's 13th hole of the day.

He was negotiating whether to play the shot with his feet inside the edge of the bunker, as his ball had settled precariously close to the sand hazard.

What followed was an intriguing exchange where Hovland and his caddie Shay Knight discussed what to do in the situation, and the World No. 11 entertained viewing golf fans with his thoughts. 

It is always great to hear discussions between a player and his caddie as we can listen to the insight of PGA Tour players and how they negotiate the course.

Hovland took a gamble with the shot and he managed to hit his ball just left of the green from 185 yards to the hole, where he was able to make a great par.

Golf fans reacted to Hovland's words with Knight:

It is clear to see that Hovland has gained a lot of fans on the PGA Tour this season and he continues to thrill people with his play and personality.
