Look, let's be honest: as great as Bubba Watson's shot to win the Masters last week was, it wasn't like the ball was going to, say, EAT him if he misplayed it.
The scene: the 15th hole of the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, S.C. Golfer Brian Gay was greenside, but he wasn't alone ... there was a freaking alligator right there with him. So Gay's caddie Kip Henley stepped up and rousted the gator. (And, yes, insert obligatory "Happy Gilmore"/Chubbs reference here.)
Gay would go on to bogey the hole, which is really about the best-case scenario. Henley, for his part, just made the game of golf 25 percent cooler.
