During the PGA Tour’s Valspar Champion, they had a little bit of a disruption! When golfer Erik van Rooyen was lined up for a shot at the 17th hole, he saw a squirrel! That’s right, squirrels interrupted the golf tournament. The NY Post says van Rooyen was fully prepared for his shot when the animal appeared. That’s when van Rooyen stepped back. The microphone actually picked up van Rooyen saying, “Sorry, squirrel.”
But that wasn’t the only squirrel to disturb play on Sunday in Palm Harbor, Florida! Around 45 minutes later, another squirrel ran across the putting green. The videos were shared by the PGA Tour on their Twitter account.

And we’re just 2 weeks away from the Masters Tournament right here in Augusta! Wonder if they’ll see any squirrels on the course?
