Baboon Hazard

     Luke Donald, 36 year-old former world number one, had a close encounter with a baboon while playing at the Nedbank Golf Challenge, Johannesburg. “We were walking up 13, saw one hiding in the tree, and got to my ball and suddenly Shane (Lowry, playing partner) said, ‘Watch out!’” said Donald. “My facial expression I’m sure was caught on camera and probably on the internet already by now. It gave me a little bit of a fright as he strolled right by me.” You’re right about that, Luke, and the video is linked below for anyone who wants to check it out.
