Luke Donald is playing in South Africa this week at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, and, on Friday, he got to experience the wildlife up close…while playing golf.
In the second round, Donald was walking toward his golf ball when he suddenly got out of the way of a galloping baboon. Maybe the baboon was just trying to help the former world No. 1 get a yardage (meterage?) after his tee shot found the fairway. Maybe not.
The run-in didn’t seem to faze Donald, who posted 9-under 63 in Round 2 and now leads Ross Fisher by two shots heading into the weekend in the limited-field, big-money tournament.
