Paul Casey found himself unable to play on for a while in the Dunhill Links Championship on Friday after a dog came on to a green and had some fun with his ball.
The incident came on the 12th at Kingsbarns as Casey continued his partnership in the celebrity pro-am with the retired USA swimmer and golf enthusiast Michael Phelps.
Eventually the dog decided to move on and the former world No3, on in two at the par five, two-putted for a birdie that lifted him to one-under par.
That was, however, still 11 adrift of the South African Branden Grace, who on Thursday equalled the European Tour record with a 12-under-par 60 on the course.
Grace, switching to St Andrews on Friday morning, was among the later starters, but his lead remained two as France’s Victor Dubuisson – round in a course-record 62 at the home of golf on Thursday – covered his first five holes at Carnoustie in level par.
One shot further back were Demark’s Thorbjorn Olesen and Spain’s Pablo Martín, who birdied the first four holes of Carnoustie’s back nine.
