    Default Black bear steals the show at US Senior Open

    It was no use shouting ‘fore’ when this unwelcome guest got in the way of players competing in the US Senior Open Championship.

    The young American black bear lumbered into view on the 13th fairway at the Broadmoor golf club in Colorado Springs on Friday while veterans, including Bernhard Langer and Tom Watson, were lining up their shots.
    Excited golf-lovers were thrilled with the bear's grand entrance during the second round of the US Senior Open.

    Golfing gets hairy: A black bear steals the show at the US Senior Open as it ambles onto the course at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs

    Star appearance: The grizzly strolled out of the mountains and checked out the spectators before making a hasty exit down some drains
    The black bear reportedly ambled out of the mountains yesterday morning just in time for the competition when he checked out spectators outside the ropes.
    Officials at the tournament were ready to tranquilize the animal and stall the competition.

    But the bear, which clearly had no such grizzly end in mind, reportedly made a sharp exit through a couple of drainage pipes and out into the wilderness.
    The course, which is carved in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, often hosts bobcats, coyotes, deer, mountain lions, red foxes, snakes and turkeys.

    Cheeky! The grizzly prowls slowly across the pitch, checking out the crowd
    But the black bear was a new and unexpected visitor. One of the golfers thought he could explain the appearance.

    '(Jack) Nicklaus isn't here, so I guess that's a substitute,' said Fred Funk.
