Loyal Reader and Sometime Guest Golf Blogger Martin sent these photos of a new hazard at his local club in Tennessee.
This evening before I left the club, I went and played #1 hole, and on the fringe was this little fella. I say little, but the shell was about 18”, and with the tail and head extended when I came up on him, he was easily 30” in length. He was only about 24” from my ball, and he could have swallowed it whole.
I am pretty sure that I could get a free drop here, but I just went and putted fast…. Really fast, and I never took my eye off him.
I’ve seen plenty of snappers in Michigan, but here, they usually stay in the ponds.
