Putt 'em up! 'Drunk' golfers brawl bare-chested on 18th green in South Africa 

This is the moment two boozy golfers brawl at the final hole during a fundraising event for a local school.

Instead of putting on the green, the two men engaged in a flurry of punches in which one armed himself with the 18th hole's flag.  

The furious golf course manager Deon Kruger confirmed that the brawlers were drunk, saying after the incident: 'From the video you can see that both were incredibly wobbly on their feet.'

The incident was filmed at the final hole of the Maccauvlei Golf Club in the northern South African city of Vereeniging on April 9.

The event included a friendly round of golf to help raise money for the local school Laerskool Vryheidsmonument, however participants ended up attacking each other with flags.

The brawl started on the final hole when one golfer accused another of stealing his mobile phone, the Times Live reported.

However, Kruger said the golfer found the man's phone in the rough on the 17th hole when he heard it ringing and picked it up.

Kruger added: 'A player on the 18th hole had lost his phone and when he called it, a golfer on the 17th hole answered it.

'There was a heated exchange of words and a rumpus when the players approached each other.

'This whole thing comes down too much alcohol and the players, who until then had been well behaved, drinking on the course.'

Kruger said: 'From the video you can see that both were incredibly wobbly on their feet.'

The manager added that drinking alcohol on the course is not allowed, but some players take it with them and keep it hidden.

Kruger added that both golfers left after the brawl and that they had written to the school to express their disapproval of the incident.

He explained: 'This was organised by the school. None of those who were involved in the altercation are our members.'

Apparently upset by the incident, Kruger said: 'Never in the 15 years that I have been here have I seen anything so barbaric taking place on the golf course.

'Our club definitely does not condone such behaviour.'
