Watch: Man Chased by Elk Calf on Golf Course


A Swedish golfer encountered an unexpected hazard the other day on the course sending him running for his life. The high-speed chase, which looked like something out of Man vs. Wild, broke out at Karlstad GC when Christer Sjogren was toying with an elk calf just off a fairway. But when it got close, he made a run for it and immediately regretted his decision. Fortunately for us, his friend filmed the whole thing! 


According to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet as translated by Golf Digest, “First, Christer tried to hide behind the trees. ‘But he followed me the whole time. So I thought I’d start running to see what would happen. When I started running, I realized that wasn’t a good decision.'”

“His friend Tony Swahn witnessed the whole thing from afar. He pulled out his phone and filmed his friend’s flight. ‘He [Christer] was mostly afraid the moose was going to attack his golf clubs. But it all worked out. He’s a farmer from Sunnö so he’s tough.'”

That’s one way to speed up play!
