I've only been on this golf beat for a year and a half now but I've seen some crazy stuff already in my time covering the sport. I can promise you, though, that I've never seen a rodent in a bunker like Miguel Angel Jimenez saw during his first round at the Scottish Open on Thursday.

As Stephen Hennessey of Golf Digest points out, there was a rule in play here with the rodent.

"Rule 23-6 in the Rules of Golf state that a dead animal is a loose impediment and cannot be removed."

So were they checking its pulse in that second photo? They actually might have been because you can move a live animal but not a dead one.

Which, when you actually think about it, is insane.

Either way, Miguel Angel Jimenez went on to par the hole. And since we're all thinking it, I'll go ahead and say it.

We should call him Miggy Mouse.
