Pro Golfer Graham DeLaet UFO Sighting: 'Freakiest Thing I've Ever Seen'

Graham DeLaet is renowned as an entertaining follow on Twitter, brandishing a wit few on tour possess. Nevertheless, DeLaet's feed was captivating for another reason on Tuesday night: the Canadian pro reported a UFO sighting, backing up his testimony with video.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Here’s the worst video ever of it <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Graham DeLaet (@GrahamDeLaet) <a href="">February 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

The Canadian pro posted a photo to his Twitter account Tuesday night showed a light in the night sky. "Just saw a UFO in Ixtapa, Mexico," he wrote. "No other explanation. Freakiest thing I've ever seen."

Critics had their own side of the story as some of DeLaet's followers did indeed find other possible explanations. Some suggested DeLaet had been sampling too much Prairie Baard, his own line of craft beer. However, DeLaet stuck to his version of the story.

There was also a more scientific possibility indicating that he'd caught a glimpse of Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket, the Falcon Heavy, in its "final burn stage," as several other sightings were reported in the southwest U.S. as well.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Around 8:30 PM in <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#scottsdale</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#arizona</a> we spotted a cloudy light in a clear sky, as it was moving it fanned out and then disappeared. We think it was a <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#meteor</a> but not sure. It was beautiful. <a href="">@abc15</a> <a href="">@azcentral</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Melissa Bellomo (@missbell512) <a href="">February 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

In the long run, DeLaet seemed to accept that as a possibility. He concluded the string of tweets with a less controversial statement: "Elon Musk is smart." Tough to argue. Some of DeLaet’s followers noted the UFO was most likely part of the Falcon Heavy launch from SpaceX. The debate over the existence of extraterrestrial life is very controversial.
