The first round of any PGA tournament is typically a stress-free zone. Players are trying to get a feel for the course while simply remaining in close enough contention to make the cut on Friday. But tensions can run a little high when alligators start walking across the fairway — especially ones with three legs.
As you can see from the video above, a three-legged alligator walked across the course on Thursday at the Zurich Classic in Avondale, Louisiana. It was one of several gators that decided to come up for some sun while the players were trudging along. Here are a couple of photos from the scene that looked like it was straight out of one of those low-budget horror movies.
Fortunately, everyone kept their distance and no one was injured. As we know, some crazy things can happen when it comes to animals and other creatures on the golf course. One 75-year-old golfer wasn’t as lucky when he encountered an alligator. Then there was that live shark, the black widow incident and the raccoon who liked to steal crap. I’m starting to think a football field might be a safer place than a golf course.
PS: How about that commentary? Du du dun. Classic.
