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.

As for the tournament itself, Donald sat atop the leaderboard heading into Sunday, but struggled to a third place finish playing on his birthday.


Michael Che of Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update weighed in on Donald’s close brush with the baboon, deciding in the end that golf was still boring.
