Golfer Joost Luitens Epic Meltdown: Three Clubs Stuck in a Tree

What Happened

Golfer Joost Luiten experienced a major meltdown during the final round of the DP Tour in Dubai. After a wayward tee shot on the ninth hole, Luiten's frustration led him to throw his driver into a tree. Unfortunately, his TaylorMade club got stuck, sparking a hilarious and unsuccessful attempt to retrieve it.

The Comedy Unfolds

Luiten's caddie tried to climb the tree to retrieve the club, but his efforts were in vain. Determined to get his driver back, Luiten resorted to launching two of his irons, which also ended up stuck in the tree. He even attempted to use a signpost to dislodge the clubs, causing laughter from onlookers.

Luiten's Frustration

Clearly not finding the situation amusing, Luiten expressed his frustration by kicking his bag in anger. With three clubs stuck in the tree, he had to finish the final hole with only 11 clubs.

Help Arrives

Thankfully, a volunteer and Luiten's pregnant wife, Melanie-Jane, came to the rescue. They managed to retrieve the lost clubs, allowing Luiten to continue playing.
