Lindsey Vonn, Tiger Woods

Whoever says golf is boring hasn't been watching lately. And it looks like we may have Lindsey Vonn to thank for making it more entertaining.

During the Presidents Cup on Thursday, Oct. 3, the Olympic skier decided to have some fun at boyfriend Tiger Woods' expense by placing a squirrel on his shoulder. (Yep, you read that right.)

Things got a little, er, hairy when Vonn took a furry pal from U.S. assistant captain Davis Love III, who had been holding the creature nicknamed "Sammy," apparently for good luck.

She then proceeded to sneak the squirrel onto her man. While Woods initially brushed it off, he soon seemed to have a change of heart when it came to his newfound friend.

Vonn, before heading to Minnesota on Friday, tweeted to Love, "Keep the squirrel happy until I get back tomorrow. :)"

The Presidents Cup, which is being played in Dublin, Ohio, features a series of men's golf matches between a team from the U.S. (including Woods) and an International Team from the rest of the world, except for Europe.

Of course, it now also features a spotlight-stealing fella named Sammy, too.
