Fifteen foot alligator spotted at Florida golf course
Raw cell phone video shows ‘Chubbs,’ a well known fifteen foot alligator sunning himself on a Florida golf course.
Golfers at an annual professional golf tournament in Louisiana received a shock when a huge alligator decided to make a snake its next meal.
In footage shared this week by the PGA Tour's official Twitter account, a gator is seen emerging from a pond at the TPC Course in Avondale, where the Zurich Classic is currently taking place. A few seconds later, it chomps down on a serpent which appears to struggle before the gator pulls it into the water.

“When snake meets gator…Nature is scary in New Orleans,” the PGA Tour said alongside the video.
“Gotta eat,” one person commented in response.
“Gators win,” wrote another.
“Nope,” said a third.
