Soaked spectator retrieves hat in water, loses beer as Paula Creamer putts (vid)
A possibly inebriated fan taking in the LPGA’s Lotte Championship in Hawaii received some air time during the tourney’s broadcast, but arguably not the most glamorous way possible, although it made for a comically absurd scene for onlookers.
As Paula Creamer looked over a putt during her round, the cameras locked in on the poor sap as he shakily navigated his return to dry land after retrieving his floppy hat that somehow ended up in the water.
The commentators clearly were enjoying the clumsy climb and it got even better when the fellow’s beer can fell into the water and floated away.
All told, not a very good scene for the guy, but it definitely was worth a few chuckles, especially when he face-planted on the ground as he tumbled out of the water.
Creamer, meanwhile, fared much better on the course than the soaked spectator. After two rounds, she is in a tie for fourth place at 6-under.
Goodness only knows what happened to that guy after his dip into the drink.
