Massive Alligator In Florida Eats Golf Ball After Being Struck In Head

When you play golf, there are several things you worry about as you hit the links.

Chipping a shot into the bunker, sending one into the drink or maybe a costly triple-bogey. One thing that probably wouldn’t cross your mind, however, is losing your ball to a colossal reptile.

Well, this became a reality to one golfer in Florida whose errant shot struck an alligator in the head. This evidently angered the gator, as it quickly made the golf ball its lunch.
