It knocked him off balance, and he then falls into the lake.

Anthony said the the ball wasn't actually his - but he "fancied a challenge" on the course's 13th hole.

The electrician said: "The funny thing is, it wasn't even my ball - I just fancied a challenge.

"When I went back to the clubhouse drenched, everyone had heard what had happened and they were howling.

"I didn't mind at all though, I don't tend to take life too seriously so I found it easy to see the funny side.”
