DP World Tour pro Joost Luiten lost three of his golf clubs up a tree after storming off the 8th green to the 9th tee in the final round of the DP World Tour Championship.
Luiten, 37, was bidding for a big finish in the final round to try and earn one of the 10 PGA Tour cards on offer for DP World Tour players.
But the six-time DP World Tour winner would miss out, and lose some of his golf clubs too.
Joost Luiten loses three golf clubs in a tree at DP World Tour finale
Luiten reached boiling point after making a bogey on the 8th and he trudged over to the 9th tee with his driver in hand.
That particular club was seemingly not behaving well so up it went into the trees.
Unfortunately for Luiten, it never came back down.
Luiten and his caddie quickly realised they had a problem and so began to throw all sorts of objects at the tree to try and get the driver down.
Objects included twigs, logs, the scoreboard and even some of Luiten's irons.
The latter quickly became a bad idea as not one, but two of Luiten's irons also got lodged in the tree.
Luiten was now without three of his golf clubs - a driver and two of his irons.
After trying to get all three clubs back down, Luiten was unsuccessful and as to avoid being on the clock, he had to continue down the 9th hole with just 11 clubs in the bag.

Thankfully for Luiten some volunteers managed to get all three of Luiten's clubs back down by the time he reached the 10th.
Luiten's wife Melania-Jane, who is pregnant with their first child, handed her husband his clubs as he entered the back nine.
After going out in 3-over par, Luiten rallied on the back nine with three birdies in a row from the 12th before making a bogey at the 18th.
He signed for a final-round 73 to finish the week 48th out of 50 on 3-over par.
Luiten unfortunately finished outside of the top 10 players who earned their PGA Tour cards for 2024.
"I just taught my driver how to fly, it just couldn't stick the landing and it stayed up the tree!" Luiten told GolfMagic after his round.
"Tried to get my TaylorMade Stealth Driver down by throwing other clubs at it and they stuck as well.
"It was just a frustrating week, not a lot went my way!"
