article imageGolf shot lands directly on top of an alligator's head

Englewood - We have all heard of the bogeys, birdies and the eagle shot on the golf course. But, the 'Gator? The rules in golf say the ball should be played from wherever it has landed, but what happens when it lands on an alligator's head?
The amazing shot occurred at a course in Florida at Englewood, Sarasota. The picture released of the alligator with a golf ball on its head, has given a whole new edge to having a hazard on the course. The image had been captured by a team of golfers playing on the Myakka Pines Course in Englewood.
The image was captured on a cell phone by golfer David Pucin, who said, "It was just a strange happening. Definitely one of the stranger things I have seen on the golf course." Although it appeared to be a mystery as to how the ball landed on top of the alligator's head - after all nobody could have placed it there by hand - it did later emerge that a golfer named Al Lancaster picked up a golf ball and tossed it toward the alligator. Perhaps, hoping to scare the the crocodile away. The ball bounced on the green, then up onto the alligator's neck.
If someone did take a shot that landed on any reptile basking by a Florida waterhole on the 16th green, the rules actually allow the player to drop the ball to a safer position close by, without losing a shot.
