Baboon startles Donald during Nedbank Challenge

Luke Donald leads the Nedbank Challenge at Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa after two rounds, but leading probably won’t earn him as much attention as a run-in with a baboon while on the course.

Donald posted a second-round 63 on Friday, then laughed at himself post-round when footage emerged of the encounter. A startled Donald jumped out of the way but his caddie remained in place.

Donald tweeted about his round, and the baboon, at the end of the day.
