... Stupidity knows no limits. I have taken photo's of gators from a good 25 yds away when I was own the green/fairway and they were by the water. I have my picture so don't need more of them. But I have been paired up with some Darwin Award Winners that creep down near them, sometimes as close as 10 feet. The absolute dumbest is the guy that turns his back on the gator while his friend takes the picture. 

Gotta be pretty stoopid to turn your back on a Gator.

8 over 79 in 10-20 mph wind. Very even performance through the bag. Putted well apart from a couple of total misreads of pace. Had 3 extremely slick downhill putts finish a total of 1 foot from the hole. Misjudged the wind a couple of times ending in dropped shots, but I’d rather that than poor swings.

Yep you are correct there---- Some of the courses on the South end the Rangers will warn people when gators are sighted and warn them. There are also Gator warning signs posted too. We were playing at Litchfield one day and the Ranger warned some Tourons in front of us about a Gator on the next hole. One of the Tourons being a jerk asked the Ranger if he warned us? The Ranger knew us and told the Jackwagon " they are locals and have enough sense to avoid them". 

A few years back we were playing The Witch which was known for Gators ( now closed more housing). There were 2 Gators out on a sand bar and these Tourons were attempting to hit wedges at them. We saw these idiots pulling brand new Pro Vs out of the sleeve. Now my bud said something to them and they arrogantly replied basically STFU and mind his own business. LOL they did not know. His wife at the time was a wheel in the County and State Humane Society and he was shooting it all on his cell phone. While waiting on them to play the hole he made a phone call to his wife and shot her the video. He told us to sit back that what was fixing to happen was worth the price of greens fees. After we made the turn (this was on #7) about the 13th hole the Pro with a County Cop on the cart came by us plus 2 more carts with cops and a DNR officer behind them. We were on 13 green and watched them being handcuffed arrested and escorted off the course. The did spend the rest of the weekend in jail because there are no Magistrates on duty for a bond hearing. My friend said a few weeks later they got high bonds being from out of state and when it went to court they were fined to the full extent of the Law. Yeah the State of SC takes its Wildlife Laws seriously. In fact the owner of that course and 2 other courses in the area was at the proceedings and took out a Tresspass warrant on all 4 of those guys for all his courses. In other words they were banned. Now the owner told this later on and I do not know how true it was. The judge also told them that legally he could not ban them from the state or beach but stated "we did not need or want people like them around our beaches"

Not to make light of the situation; definitely sad.    But as a public service,  for those in gator country make sure you take a frying pan with you:

I shot my personal best 77 yesterday for the 3rd time in my life.  I was +1 thru 15 and doubled 2 of the last 3.  I am obviously not upset with my round as it is the best I have ever played but this seems to be a recurring theme when I am playing really well to finish poorly.  I dont know if it is nerves or pressure of not being somewhere I have ever been before on the scorecard, but I can remember the same feeling when trying to break 80 that I dont feel anymore after I have done it a handful of times.  Its also a weird feeling to walk away from the course both happy and frustrated, but I guess that sums up the game of golf pretty well.

It has been brutally hot here - perhaps our rainy season has finally kicked in though which will relieve some of that.  At any rate we've just been playing nine on one of the weekend days depending upon my preaching schedule.  Since I'm involved in the LAB test my practice has only been putting.  I shot a nice 37 yesterday, 2 birdies, 3 bogeys.  My shot of the day was actually in the midst of one of the bogeys - I misjudged the wind on number 8 and my shot ended up long and left - thought I had 160 into the wind turned out it was down wind - never a good thing with a 9 wood, I can easily hit that bad boy 180 down wind.  So I found myself inside a still dry hazard - checked for gators, checked for snakes and saw none so went in with 8 iron, pitched it into the bank leading to the green, climbed the hill perfectly and left myself a 15 footer for par straight up the hill - lipped out the putt but still saved a big stroke with that shot.

Trust me I have been to school on the down wind 9 wood. Mine will flip float forever. Had sorta of the same situation Saturday in the Shootout to a Par 3. Hit a little low cut 4 iron that worked. Let the wind knock it down. Even though I now carry a 7&9 woods I still carry and can somewhat hit a 4 iron if I have to not pretty but somewhat effective

Owen and I got in the back nine at River Heights today.  He went +6 and I went +12 (48).  Good contact today.  Hit my driver 280 on hole 12 for a new long and clobbered my 8 iron 170 to sky past the pin on a par three.  I continue making solid contact and my club distances are going up and up.  Hopefully soon I can start reigning them in and getting everything a little more on target. 

That said I kept coming up short on my short approaches.  I wouldn't say its the yips, but the idea of thinning it into the next county is in my head and I wind up wussing out on the shot. 

On the whole, though...a really good round.  I chunked the hell out of one shot but otherwise my misses are legitimate (if that makes sense) and generally things that I can diagnose as they happen.  Promising days ahead!
