This man's playing golf when a kangaroo bounds up to him, grabs his club and hits his ball about half a mile...
I'm studying Grammr in use, and I can't understand this sentence..
Who grabs his club and hits his ball?
This man? or A kangaroo?

That's what I thought too but a little search on the internet revealed that it's just an example of the present continuous from 'Advanced Grammar in Use" by Martin Hewings.
But we shouldn't let that stop us from making up the rest of the joke though.
So, the man turns to the kangaroo and says, "That was ace! How did you do that?" and the boomer hops away muttering, "Don't be a dill, mate. Roos can't talk."
