Move over, Dos Equis guy. We’ve officially found The Most Interesting Man in the World.
Jungle Bird – well, James Andrew Dudley, of Wallasey, United Kingdom, as he’s known legally – again made an appearance at one of golf’s biggest tournaments.
Getty Images’ David Cannon captured an image of The Bird – wearing his customary Union Jack snow cap – interrupting the trophy ceremony at the Ricoh Women’s British Open in Hoylake, England. To her credit, winner Jiyai Shin is photographed laughing hysterically in the background.
Bird made his debut at the 2012 U.S. Open in San Francisco, where he disrupted Webb Simpson’s trophy presentation. After making his presence known, Bird was hauled off the 18th green by police, but only after an assist by USGA executive director Mike Davis.
Then came the Notre Dame-Navy college football game in Dublin, Ireland, on Sept. 1. During the third quarter, he somehow finagled his way onto the field and proceeded to dance an Irish jig in the end zone. Hey, give the guy credit: He’s well traveled.
See you at Augusta, Jungle Bird?
