A bee who decided that Matt Kuchar's golf ball was a good place to rest held up play at the Franklin Templeton Shootout on Friday.

Kuchar hit a drive into the middle of the fairway on the seventh hole, but when his partner Harris English approached the ball, he realized that a bee was clinging to it. Rules officials were called in to mediate the situation while Kuchar and English waited and looked on. Eventually, a tee was used to dislodge the bug from the ball, but only after consultation. 

Kuchar and English are currently leading the tournament. Watch the insect incident unfold below:
