WATCH: Two parents futilely run down their kids at the ANA Inspiration


Every parent has been where these two parents were as the 2018 ANA Inspiration was coming down to another thrilling conclusion.

Charley Hull was hitting a daring second shot into the risk-reward closing par 5 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., but a family of four that was probably trying to watch the Englishwoman hit didn't get to see the shot cross the guarding water hazard. That's because the couple's two kids made a break for it away from the rope line and back toward the tee.

As Hull is hitting, you can see first the kids running into and out of the picture, with the mom not too far behind them. Then, kind of dogging it a bit is the dad, who's jogging his way into the frame after his wife and kids.

If you've ever had small kids in your care, then you know just how funny this is.

For what it's worth, Hull seemed to have no clue what was happening behind her. It was probably 100 yards in the background. Now I'm curious where the kids finally got caught.
