Golfer Attacked by Alligator, Lives to Tell About It

There’s just something about golf that seems to attract people of all sorts to play the game. It also seems to attract a lot of something else: alligators.

In Florida, (where else?) 75-year-old Albert Miller went to retrieve his ball from a pond near the 15th hole. Then, all of a sudden, an alligator jumped out of the water and caught him by the knee.

As he turned to leave, the alligator launched itself out of the water and sank its teeth into Miller’s left knee. His friends rushed to his aid and clung on to his arms as the animal thrashed wildly and attempted to pull him into the water.

Miller said, “He let me go. I was three feet from my life. He had me submerged up to my belt buckle. That was my miracle of the month.”

The alligator was estimated to be 9 feet long and weighed nearly 190 pounds. Miller required about 40 stitches to close up the nearly 10-inch cut, and some other injuries as well.

What do you suppose the par is for a hole with an alligator on it?
