A 50 year old amature golfer had a fun old time when his ball landed in a water hazord.

Bruce Burger was trying to retrieve his ball from a pond on the 6th when an one eyed alligotor came out of the water, grabbing Burgers tasty right arm and pulled him in.

The man used his free arm to beat the reptile in the head and was eventually freed. He was taken to hospital with minor wounds.

 “I saw him reach down to get his ball and he yelled” for help, said Janet Pallo, who was playing the fifth hole and ran over to drive the man to the clubhouse.

The pond at the sixth hole has a “Beware of Alligator” sign.

“Unfortunately, that’s part of Florida,” course general manager Rod Parry said. “There’s wildlife in these ponds.”

Talk about your water hazard.

Does this remind you of a certain one eyed alligator in the film Happy Gilmore?
