Euro Tour star strips down, only to duff water shot

Haydn Porteous is one of the rising stars in golf. The top ranked amateur coming out of South Africa, the 21-year-old captured the Joburg Open just a month ago, instantly becoming one to watch on the European circuit for the 2016 campaign.

However, you're about to watch Porteous for an entirely different reason.

Porteous was in the midst of a rough round Thursday at the Tshwane Open, posting four consecutive bogeys when he came to his 13th hole of the day. Porteous proceeded to put his approach shot into a water hazard, leading to this:

Personally, I don't know why pros are so worried about getting mud on their clothes. Their sponsors give them new ensembles each week anyway. This feels a tad gratuitous, like Porteous just wants to show of his physique.

Or I'm just super jealous that, not only does this dude have a world-class game, but he's chiseled like a statue. One of the two.
