Three curious — more likely territorial — alligators wandered out of a water hazard and made an appearance on the fairway during the first-round the Zurich Classic of New Orleans Thursday. Considering that they consider the bayou their home turf, it was no surprise to see the critters lurking about. The creepy part was watching one three-legged, eight-footer hobble up to a rules official in a cart.
I heard they named him Captain Hook's Revenge.
Ricky Barnes steered clear of the three toothy hazards and finished the day with a one-stroke lead heading into Friday.
