He explains the situation, taps the glass jar with the alligator's eye in it only to have Happy explain, in fewer words, that carrying around the eye of the animal that bit off your arm is pretty strange. Well, sometimes, movies become real life, and in South Carolina, that was very much the case.
An unidentified golfer went to retrieve a golf ball from a pond, and encountered one of those nasty beasts. The alligator got away with the man's arm but, with Chubbs smiling from some unreal heaven above, the gator was killed.
The man, who is in his 70s, was retrieving his ball from a pond when the 10-foot alligator bit him at Ocean Creek Golf Course in Beaufort County. The gator pulled the golfer into the pond and ripped off his arm in the struggle. His golf partners were able to free him.You can say what you want about golf, but the sport is dangerous. Alligators, rattlesnakes and 10,000 foot crevasses are everywhere, not to mention the occasional flying golf club or a fiery playing partner hitting you in the hand with his 2-iron (Sorry Will).
Wildlife workers killed the alligator and retrieved the arm in the hopes it might be reattached.
The man is said to be fine for now, but I think we can all learn an important lesson here -- if you hit your golf ball in a pond, that may or may not have alligators, just leave the damn Titleist. It ain't worth it.
