During Thursday's opening round of the LPGA's Australian Open, a "kangaroo delay" was issued after mobs of kangaroos began hopping across the greens of the Royal Canberra championship course.
According to Fox Sports
, Karrie Webb, one of Australia's most famous golfers and someone who has certainly seen her fair share of kangaroos, had to suspend her play after a mob entered the fairway. Webb casually waited as the mob made its way across the fairway, seemingly unfazed by the disruption.

Several other golfers in the field also had to suspend their play due to the meandering mobs of marsupials. Ten of the world's top 20 female golfers are competing in this years event.
The Herald Sun
reports it is not unusual for kangaroos to visit the area this time of year. Droughts over the past several years have driven the animals to the area in search of water and green grass.
