One of the more interesting hazards a golfer may encounter on an African course is a prowling primate. Englishman Luke Donald discovered as much while playing in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa.
Donald maintained a healthy sense of humor about the incident, even after reacting to the baboon like a squeamish squirt.
Couple of things happened to me that haven't happened in a while….one I shot 63, and two I let a baboon play thru on the course. Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) December 5, 2014
As for the tournament itself, Donald sat atop the leaderboard heading into Sunday, but struggled to a third place finish playing on his birthday.
