Florida golf ball diver survives Alligator mating attack
When Tampa, Fla., golf-ball diver Dwight Monreal woke up on Saturday morning, little did he know his day would include a brief and savage romantic interlude with an alligator. But, then again, who really prepares for that as well as they should.
It was at hole No. 13 at Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club where the 62-year-old Monreal was grabbed by a gator, only to be tossed and turned before help arrived.
“We rushed toward the water and the gator let go of him,” golf cart attendant Matt Johnson said. “I like to think we scared him.”
So there you have it - Matt Johnson, hero.
Anyway, workers at the Club - who have promised the No. 13 hole will be closed until they make shoes and belts out of the gator - have said that it’s gator mating season, said that may have had something to do with the attack on Monreal, who’s feeling fine with just some small cuts and bruises.
So, as you set off on your Monday and a new week, just remember one important thing - the chance of you being attacked by amorous alligator are astronomical. Unless you’re a golf-ball retriever. Then it’s about 50-50.
