Joel Dahhem is a one-time winner on the PGA Tour, who is ranked No. 93 in the world.

Physically, the 34-year-old journeyman is the epitome of non-descript. Those who would recognize him on the street is pretty much nobody, outside his circle of friends and family.

Put a mask on him, and the recognizable factor flatlines.

A shuttle driver proved this point when he assumed a masked-up Dahmen and his caddie were golf fans.

Unfortunately, the tournament volunteer was being recorded by Dahmen’s caddie, Geno Bonnalie, and the video clip ended up on Twitter, where the unpaid driver became the butt of jokes in a viral thread.

The driver, named Dale Guttman, was not happy, and replied in anger:

“Worked a 14 hour day on a Volunteer basis driving the shuttle. Really don’t appreciate a man who handles another man’s bag and cleans his balls mocking me though.”

In response, Bonnalie apologized:

“Hi Dale, first off, I mean this sincerely…thank you for volunteering. I posted that video because: 1. It was funny, & 2. This kind of thing happens all the time. I’m not making fun of you or anyone who makes this mistake at all. It was an honest mistake that was funny.”
