Irish golfer, Paul Dunne, was forced to go topless and shoeless during today's final round of the Cazoo Wales Open on the European Tour.
Dunne's ball was stuck on a muddy embankment just off the green, and in order to avoid dirtying his clothes, Dunne took the rather rare decision to go topless for the shot.
It turned out to be a good decision however, as a muddy piece of grass stuck itself to his torso.

Dunne has now finished his final round of the European Tour event. After shooting a disappointing two over par for the day, he finds himself on one over on total, in a tie for 2oth, and 13 shots off leader Callum Shinkwin.
The Irishman needs a strong finish to this season's European Tour as he finds himself 256th in the rankings, with the cut-off point for 2022/23 European Tour membership at 123.
Dunne famously hit the scene as an amateur in 2015, when he went into the final round of that year's Open in a tie for first with Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen.
Speaking with Golf Digest recently, Dunne remembered that fateful day.
"But I had a bad feeling after that putt on nine. It wasn’t quite that I didn’t want to be there, but the disappointment was overriding everything else at the time. My mind had gone somewhere else. Suddenly, all I wanted to do was get out of Louis’ way. It was ‘ground swallow me up’ time. The next two hours weren’t fun.”
