Golf fans react to PGA Tour pro Mark Hubbard TAKING THE MICK with his putter!

PGA Tour pro Mark Hubbard was shown once all week during the live TV broadcast at The American Express, and that was on his final hole as he stood over a 10-foot putt for par. Despite already missing the cut by some margin, there was very good reason for golf fans to pay close attention to what happened next! 

Already standing 3-over par for his round and well outside the halfway cut mark as he reached his final green at the par-4 9th hole, Hubbard stepped into his par effort and then took the mick by placing his pinky down the bottom of his putter shaft before pulling the trigger. WATCH what happened below:

As you can imagine, golf fans tuning into the live PGA Tour coverage on Friday evening could not quite believe what they were witnessing.

Some even questioned whether his stroke was legal due to it looking as though his putter was being anchored into his belly as he crouched over the ball. 

Former Masters champion and now golf commentator Trevor Immelman did his best to analyse the putting stroke afterwards - as you can see in the video clip above. 

Hubbard would go on to bogey his final hole and card a 4-over 76 to finish on level par for the week and outside the top 100. 

Here's a look at some of the best tweets following Hubbard's new putting stroke: 

 

 

I'm guessing he had a tough week on the greens!

That guy has completely lost the plot... but I love it! 

I guess there is unconventional, and then there is this nonsense!

He definitely lost a bet with someone.

I might have to try this at the weekend. My putting can't get much worse right now. 

Erm, isn't that anchoring?!

USGA be scrambling to the phones right about now!
