LIV GOLF arrived in the United States for the first time with a number of new additions.
And one of the last to appear in the series was a deer that had run onto the fairway.
The animal was seen hopping across the green grass on a clear, sunny day in Portland, Oregon.
It didn’t affect the game for long and was more just an interested spectator.
Unlike most fans who hung around, the deer quickly darted out of sight after a brief appearance on TV.
LIV Golf traveled to Portland, Oregon for the second event since they took the stage.
The 48-player field hit under bright blue skies on the west coast at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club.
For the first time, some well-known new signings could also be seen.
American stars Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed all made their LIV golf debuts after missing the first event.
Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson also returned alongside European Ryder Cup stars Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter.
LIV kicked off earlier this month in London, where Charl Schwarzel pocketed $4 million for his win.
Portland is the first of four consecutive events in the United States ahead of shows in Thailand and Saudi Arabia.
The 2022 LIV series ends in Miami in October.
But golf’s civil war is only just beginning as LIV players are now banned from playing on the PGA Tour.
