Alligator brings new meaning to golf hazard

Yahoo! New Zealand Sport Updated April 29, 2013, 1:24 pm

There are plenty of hazards in the game of golf; water, bunker, and apparently, alligator.

That was the case at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans over the weekend, when three of those creatures were approaching some of the golfers on the course who were near the water,.

But nobody made waves like the three-legged gator that took on a rules official.

I don't know about you but the moment I ever see an alligator on the course that's when I'm heading to the 19th hole for a nice relaxing drink.

    I wonder if hitting it as hard as possible with the biggest hitting stick in the bag,ie the driver,would(1)knock it out cold(2)Scare it into running back to the water,or (3)just pizz it off enough so that attacks whatever is close enough?And yet another reason why I love NZ.We dont any poisonous spiders(possibly the katipo),we dont have snakes,we dont have huge dangerous reptiles,bears,wolves or any of those things.The most dangerous creature we have is the slimy,belly slithering politician(interestingly enough,it is closely related to all snakes).Sadly they're numbers are increasing and along with that comes the inevitable decline in the ability to have your own cash as they need more of it annually and take it in the form of sneaky slithering tax increases.Be careful.they are in your neighbourhood.....NOW
