LION'S GOLF BALL GETS PRIDE OF PLACE.

A GOLF ball stuck on a lioness's tooth is to become an attraction at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club.

Staff at Knowsley Safari Park found the ball inside the mouth of Whit the lioness, after spotting her rolling in agony.

Now it's going on show with other weird golfing objects at the British Golf Museum at St Andrew's in Scotland. And officials have even created a new rule.

The rule says the player should be allowed to drop a ball without penalty on the nearest spot, no nearer the hole, which is not dangerous. Knowsley Safari Park general manager David Ross said Whit has now made a full recovery.
