Looks like things are getting a little nuts for Tiger Woods – and we’re not talking about the competition at the Presidents Cup.
During Thursday’s round of play, the golfer’s girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, decided to have a little fun with her man on the sidelines as he watched the action take place on the green. After Woods’s fellow U.S. team member Davis Love III befriended a squirrel, dubbed Sammy, during a rain delay, Vonn took the furry critter out of his pocket and subtly placed it on Woods’s neck.
While it took the athlete a few seconds to realize what was happening (those around him caught on faster – check the reaction shots!), he quickly brushed off the animal and resumed watching the round. Better luck next time, Lindsey!
