Suzann Pettersen’s husband, Christian Ringvold, didn’t have ‘volunteer greenskeeper’ on his list of tasks for Solheim Cup week, but he stepped up when a sprinkler went off during Saturday morning foursomes on the 16th hole at Finca Cortesin.

The greenside sprinkler was spewing water, so Ringvold ran up to it and stomped it with his foot several times to knock the head back into the ground, shutting the water off. Golfweek’s Beth Ann Nichols got a great photo of him in action:
Strangely enough, this isn’t the first time this has happened at a Solheim Cup. In 2017, a sprinkler went off while Georgia Hall and Paula Creamer were playing their singles match.
After a day and a half of competition, Team USA leads Team Europe 7-5.
