Top 10 times animals stole the show on the PGA golf tour
Sometimes, animals just want to steal the spotlight, and that's just what happened many times during the PGA tour.

It's time to meet the animals stealing the show at the PGA Tour!

#10 Bees swarm in New Orleans

Nothing like a great swarm of bees to make even the toughest golfers duck for cover. As the commentators said, "You just don't see that everyday." Very true, very true.

#9 Duck wants the ball

When a duck wants the ball, it's going to get the ball. Unless you have a trusty golf caddy to scatter granola to lure it away from the ball. 10 points to the golf caddy.

#8 Iguana alert!

At the Puerto Rican Open, a large iguana (those animals are huge) took interest in the golf ball for a few seconds and then decides it isn't worth his time.

#7 Hawk vs. Microphone

In the hawk's mind: if it looks like a mouse and feels like a mouse, it has to be a mouse, right? Well, unfortunately for the hawk, humans have created large furry microphones that have a very similar appearance to mice. The microphones probably don't taste quite as delicious to the hawk.

#6 Alligator stroll

When you play golf for a while, you get to know the animals that enjoy disrupting the game. This is one of those animals that is a regular at New Orleans games. They call him "Tripod" because he is missing part of his front leg. Here in this picture, golfer Davis Love III is trying to take a picture of Tripod with his phone. I guess there are celebrities in all species.

#5 Diving turtle

Apparently this turtle became bored with the golf game and decided to start doing a different sport: diving! He teeters on the ledge of this bridge and then makes a plunging dive to the stream below. Unfortunately, he made a little too much of a splash for a winning dive.

#4 When a turtle's got to go, a turtle's going to go

Yet, another turtle encounter made the list. This one was less than thrilled about being picked up and removed from the course, so it let a stream of pee out while it was being carried away. That's one way to show you're upset with the situation.

#3 "Nope, it's my ball now."

When a ball falls into enemy territory, the golfer may never get it back. This is what happened at RBC Heritage when a ball fell down towards a pond and an alligator decided it was his ball to keep. The caddy pushed the alligator back into the pond, but the ball was not returned.

#2 Tiger Woods and Sammy, the Squirrel

At the 2013 Presidents Cup, Lindsey Von (Tiger Woods' girlfriend at the time) decides Tiger needs a visit from Sammy, the Squirrel. Nothing like a little playful distraction on the golf course.

#1 Seagull wants a souvenir ball

During the 1998 Players Championship, an interested seagull decided it wanted a souvenir ball to take home. It pushes and picks up Steve Lowery's ball and then finally gets a good grip on the ball in its mouth and takes flight. Unfortunately for the seagull, the ball dropped out of his mouth right as he was passing over the pond. Better luck next time!

The swam of bees is too real though. I'd be terrified.

@mchlyang I know! They seem not afraid of them at all! I would be running the other way if an alligator was that close to me.
