I don't know who wrote the book saying to play the golf ball wherever it lands, but I'm pretty sure they didn't face this problem:
The golfers -- Harold Parris, Rothermund and Tom Lindon -- arrived at the par-3 12th hole shortly before noon one day, and it was Parris' turn to tee off first, said Lindon, 77, a resident of Sea Pines.I suppose he would have been happy if the gator had taken off with the ball.
There were two alligators near the green on Robber's Row golf course when Parris, who happened to be golfing without his glasses that day, teed off. The ball bounced once about 2 feet before landing directly on one of the reptiles' tails, Lindon said.
"Unbelievable," Lindon said with a laugh. "It was one of the funniest things I had ever seen. The alligator didn't move an inch."
