Who ever said golf can’t be dangerous? Just because it isn’t a contact sport doesn’t mean there aren’t risks involved. No, we are not talking about a golf ball cranking an innocent fan in the head as he cheers for his favorite golfer. That stuff is plenty dangerous, but it doesn’t send a chill up your spine quite in the same way that an alligator devouring a huge snake can.
If the players at the PGA Championship in South Carolina were considering going near the water in search of their ball prior to the first round, they probably aren’t any more. Sometimes all it takes is the food chain at work to discourage thoughts like that. As that elderly gentleman who was dragged by an alligator could tell you, it’s never really worth it.
