An Aussie man's game of golf came to an abrupt halt this week when it was interrupted by a mob of kangaroos, leaving him in disbelief as he watched them hop by.

Golfer Stephen Roche was at the Heritage Golf and Country Club in Victoria when suddenly, from a distance, what appears to be hundreds of marsupials hop across the lawn.

"Look at this, it's a stampede," the sportsman said in a video capturing the wild moment. "It is a fair dinkum stampede," he repeated.

"We have kangaroos on our two courses at Heritage Golf & Country Club, but I’ve never seen this before," he wrote on X, formally Twitter, where she shared the incredible footage on Wednesday. In the video, he joked they "better not stand on my golf ball".

Fellow golfer Michael McCarthy saw the amazing clip and revealed he was there and saw it too. He admitted it "felt like it went on forever". In the comments, Roche said it was "amazing to see" and reassured concerned viewers there was no damage to the greens.

"They're soft-footed animals. The only sign of them is footprints in bunkers," he said.
