Golfer Paul Casey was all lined up for an eagle putt on the 12th green Friday at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland when a dog thought it was time to get in the game.

He was 20 feet from the cup on the third hole on Friday, when a dog ran from the sidelines and onto the green and ran off with his ball.

”It’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever had happen on a golf course. I noticed the dog on the 12th tee and he sort of followed us down the fairway before taking a real liking to my golf ball.”

Casey is partnered with Olympic swimmer Micheal Phelps in the pro-am tournament. He was ready to play with another ball, but a someone stopped the dog near the 13th tee and got back the ball.

A European Tour official inspected the ball and Casey was allowed to play it, and still scored a birdie.

Meanwhile, while random dogs were stealing his partner’s balls, Phelps had a great day, showing his prowess doesn’t just lie in the swimming pool. The gold medalist sunk an amazing 159-foot putt, showing that there might just be life for him out here on dry land after all.
