However, Australian ace Lee had a close run-in with a cute critter while warming up on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old, ranked 31st in the world, was getting his shorts in on the green at Pinehurst in North Carolina.

But Lee was left stunned as a mysterious animal ran onto the turf.

Despite looking like a squirrel, the small creature had a bizarre black-and-white colouring.

It left Lee fearing it may have been a skunk.

And the golfer was forced to retreat in brilliant scenes as the animal gave chase on several occasions.

Filming the incident, Lee said: “Hello Pinehurst. What is this animal? 

“Is it a skunk, or a raccoon, or a squirrel?”


Lee then said to the creature: “Stay back, brother, stay back. You want something? Look at this stance.”

However, the comments appeared to inflame the animal, which began bounding towards Lee.

Luckily for Lee, the furry fiend then slinked off the course.

He sighed: “Just chilling.”

Fans were left in stitches at Lee’s run-in with the mystery animal, which turned out to be a harmless fox squirrel.
