Usually, it's cute when an animal steals the spotlight at a golf tournament. Whether it's a bird flying off with a golf ball, a family of geese crossing a fairway (or an angry goose attacking a golfer), a deer taking in the action, or maybe a dog hanging out on a tee box.
But, it can be downright scary too (a lot scarier than that time Peter Uihlein was attacked by a frog)... Like on Friday in the Nedbank Challenge being played in South Africa. That's where former world No. 1 Luke Donald was spooked by -- of all things -- a baboon!
Check it out:
How about that uncomfortable giggle from Donald? It was one of those, "I know the cameras are on me so I'm going to laugh so I don't get made fun of on social media, but get me out of here!" reactions.
Animals on the course are great. Unless they're animals I only wish to see on a safari. Donald, by the way, went on to shoot a 63 and claim the 36-hole lead.
