A bobcat lies quietly next to a ball hit into the woods by local golfer Gene Anthony.

Local Claremore golfer Gene Anthony, 88, shot an 87 at Heritage Hills Golf Course last week.

That is quite a feat, but he also did something else.

On Hole 8, Anthony missed the fairway on his tee ball, sending it into the nearby trees.

When Anthony and his playing partner, Gary Easley, searched for the errant ball, they found it lying next to a bobcat.

The cat didn’t leave until Anthony went to retrieve the ball.

This is certainly something Anthony and Easley will remember for some time during their golf outings.
