    What is the proper club

    For a 6 ft gator in a green-side water hazaed?

    At the very least, I'm turning a club over and hitting left-handed so I can keep an eye on that bastard.

    The club house would be the safest selection.
    Not leaving until the game is over.

    Proper club?

    Not sure if there is a proper "club" for that critter.
    But the proper "tool" just might have "magnum" in the description.
    Let's go DUKE !!!!

    I'm not quite sure about gators, but three irons work when you have a large snapping turtle on the green.

    I was playing at Hilton Head once, and pulled up to my ball in the cart. Had been looking for it, didn't notice until I got out of the cart that there was a nine foot gator +/- about 30 yards away. At first I saw it and thought it was fake, because I was looking into its wide open mouth but didn't see a throat. Then I realized I was standing in front of a @#$@# @#$@#$ gator and about soiled myself.

    (For the record, I picked up and took the triple bogey max on the hole).

    A tire iron might be a reasonable choice, too.

    If you had soiled yourself, could you have declared it ground under repair, and saved par on the hole?

    A whole new meaning to getting "relief" for sure.

    I too have a Hilton Head gator story. I forget which course I was playing, possibly the Palmer course off Island. There was a raised tee with a pond to the left of it. We were waiting for a 4some of ladies playing in front of us, and they were on the tee (we were parked some distance behind them near the men's tee). A rather large lady was addressing her tee shot, and failed to notice the 7 foot gator sunning himself on the lake side of the tee, about 15 feet from her. The gator looked at the woman, opened his mouth and you could see his tiny brain thinking "Lunch!"
    Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!

    The proper club would be the "club"house, specifically the spa where I would be getting a massage before enjoying a nice "club" sandwich and a large glass of ice tea in relative safety.

    2010 Myrtle Beach boys golf outing - Can't remember which course. Might have been Oyster Bay.

    The rule book specifically provides relief for rattlesnakes, bees, and fire ants as dangerous situations, but not poison ivy, cacti, or stinging nettles; there is no mention of alligators or crocodiles. I'm not making this up. Nevertheless, I invoked rule 1-4/10 and took a drop a long way away without penalty. He/she looked way hungry.
