‘That was the last ball’: Pro’s infant son steals Dad’s golf ball, tosses it into water

David Lingmerth's infant son steals his dad's golf ball at TPC Sawgrass

Running out of golf balls is a common concern for an inexperienced weekend hacker on a tough course. Not so much for a professional golfer trying to get in some putting practice. Unless, of course, your infant son swipes your ball and throws it into the water.

That’s exactly what happened to PGA Tour pro David Lingmerth, at least according to an adorable video posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Tuesday.

In the clip, Lingmerth’s 15-month-old son Leon David grabs his dad’s ball, then waddles across an unidentified green at TPC Sawgrass. Just as Lingmerth pleads “No, na na na na-” Leon tosses the ball off the green and into a water hazard. All the Swedish Tour veteran can do is calmly tell his toddler, “That was the last ball.”

Check out the hilarious moment below.

Sorry, not sorry! 😐

Lingmerth, who turned pro back in 2010, has one career PGA Tour victory to his the name: the 2015 Memorial.

This isn’t the first appearance Leon has made on his proud dad’s Instagram account. Last June, Lingmerth posted a video of him holding Leon while he putts on a practice green before the Quicken Loans National, which you can see below.
