Peter Uihlein has faced his fair share of challenges while on the golf course.
Formerly the world’s top-ranked amateur golfer, a two-time Walker Cup player, U.S. Amateur winner and, now, a rising star in the professional ranks, Uihlein is no stranger to the pressure the game of golf can present.
One challenge he’s never faced while on the course, however, is apparently one of the amphibious variety.
At this past weekend’s KLM Open in The Netherlands, Uihlein was surprised by a frog while setting up for a shot.

Now, in Uihlein’s defense, we’ve all been startled by something merely due to the “surprise factor.” But, it sure looks like he’s quite creeped out by that frog.
Naturally, the golf world — including Uihlein’s former Oklahoma State teammate Rickie Fowler — had some fun over this:

We can only wonder what his reaction would have been if it was a snake that surprised him rather than a frog, but for his sake, we’re glad Uihlein survived.
