I'm Never Playing In The South, Ever!
By Kickntrue on 10/9/09
I'm never playing golf south of North Carolina ever again; not when a gator can just jump out and eat my arm off.
The man, who is in his 70s, was retrieving his ball from a pond when the 10-foot alligator bit him at Ocean Creek Golf Course in Beaufort County. The gator pulled the golfer into the pond and ripped off his arm in the struggle. His golf partners were able to free him.

Wildlife workers killed the alligator and retrieved the arm in the hopes it might be reattached.
The golfer continued to play without his arm and hit a hole in one!


Just kidding. The dude was in agony because he had his arm chewed off by a gator. There was no way he could keep playing.

So- moral of the story... never play private country clubs, right?

/something terrible is going to happen to me this weekend for making fun of this, isn't it?

This takes the meaning of water hazard to a whole new level...

No gators here in Texas!!! If we saw one, we'd just shoot it!!!

I had to play a shot with my back to an 8 foot gator in Florida once. The most terrifying thing I've ever done in sports.

"Damned alligator just POPPED up, cut me down on my prime. He got me, but I tore one of that bastard's eyes out though. Look at that."

"Hey, why don't I just go eat some hay, make things out of clay, lay by the bay? I just may! What'd ya say?"

You eat piece of $hit for breakfast?

Maybe very few gators in Austin, but EVERY course in southeast Texas has gators. The one on #8 at Babe Zaharias has gotten pretty big, about 8 feet now. I guess they'll finally take it out, after it eats some little kid.
Swingem says:
WTF?!! What's a golf ball worth? Dude should have invested in a ball retriever.
kidputter says:
Forget the ball retriever. If you can afford the CC dues, buy another stinking ball. That way you can stay in your happy place.
jtrevena says:
At least you can see a Gator (most of the time) as it runs or swims away. The guy must have smelled like chicken pot pie or something. Water moccasins aren't ideal either and they are seen as far north as Lake Erie, so I will stick to golf north of Toronto where all we have to worry about are curious deer, aggressive moose and big bear terds...and my cranky golfing partners.
