Golf is one of those Marmite sports, you either love it or you find it insufferably boring.
But throw in a massive alligator charging around and it might be enough to sway those looking for something more extreme.
This reptile was pictured walking across Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto in Florida.
Charles Helms, who caught the incident on his mobile, said he initially thought it was part of a practical joke.
‘I was stunned and silent,’ he told ABC Action News.
