Chloe Williams stumbled. And almost like a set of dominoes, everyone doubled.
There were her play partners, her canister and the Aramco Women’s Series play partner bags on the Women’s European Tour — a Bangkok event, laughing. There was the TV presenter who gave Williams her iPhone to show her a replay, laughing. There was Williams herself laughing.
And now you too join in the fun. Though, you may find it hard to decide which is the best – a moment on Saturday 6th at Thai Country Club, or reactions to it.
We’ll start with the fall. When Williams slid back before hitting the tee on Bar-3, her heel hit an extension of an ad sign, and the banner collapsed, and so did Williams. She straightened her legs. She lay there for a while before her partner grabbed her by the feet and twisted her before helping her back.
Then there was the Williams game. The anchor stuck it out nine holes later.
“Talk to us through the pre-swing routine you had today at 6,” the announcer said.
“I’m sorry, I just saw this,” Williams said in the video. Shared by the tour on their Twitter feed. “Oh, frankly, well, you know…”
“Oh, sorry, that was cool,” she continued. “In my defense, well, he’s been there all week, but…”
“But the little thing—well, not a little—the thing I found is brown. It’s there, you know what I mean…”
“But the grass is green,” said the announcer.
“Well, I didn’t see that,” she said. “Oh I feel ashamed.”
At this point, the two of them started walking down the aisle.
“Let’s walk a bit to get to your ball,” said the announcer. “But why didn’t you show the camera what happened, what was the effect of the fall? Yeah, go on. Well, God bless you, I got a sunburn yesterday, so I thought that would be her worst problem. But you actually topped it in the last round, right? ?
Williams showed the camera a mark on the back of her right leg. Then he laughed.
“Oh, honestly, it’s great,” she said. But you know what, at least I can contribute some fun to the group on the tee.”
“Well, you equalized that hole, right?” asked the announcer.
“Actually, girls, I knew they were in hysterics while I was on the ball,” Williams said. “And to be fair, I couldn’t believe how fast I could make myself up. Then I erased it and did it evenly. I told the girls, ‘This must be one of the best bands I’ve made in history.'”
“I bet you don’t think you’re going to do your best today, but you will,” said the announcer.
“I saw you coming,” she said. “I knew what was going on.”
“Okay, take care of yourself, okay. I don’t want another stumble, okay,” said the announcer.
Williams laughed again. For those keeping score, that was nine times in the 80-second video.
“Oh, that’s cool,” she said. “very funny.”
