May 25 (UPI) -- A big squirrel on a Texas golf course narrowly evaded being struck by a PGA player's drive during a televised tournament.

A video posted to YouTube by PGA Tour's official account shows golfer Sergio Garcia hitting a ball off the tee during the AT&T Byron Nelson tournament at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving.

The announcers praise Garcia's "bullet" as it travels over the fairway and heads toward the grass in the path of a large squirrel running across the course.

It appears for a moment as though the squirrel is about to be struck by the ball, but it jumps in time and the ball bounces between the lucky animal's legs.
