"Former world number three Paul Casey had his ball stolen by a dog while lining up an eagle putt during the second round of the Dunhill Links Championship on Friday."
Unfortunately, the few times I've committed golf, I never had such a convenient excuse.
Update: Here's a link with a picture of the dog caught in the act.
Update II: Sweet! Ed Driscoll, posting at Instapundit, digs up my old comment about the clothes having no emperor (H/T to Spiny Norman in the comments for bringing it to my attention).
