    Especially bad since its a one stroke penalty, not two.

    My heart goes out for the gator. It was doing way comes natural. It's the golfer that was being a stupid idiot.

    Not only that, but he was probably one of those hackers that spends more time taking up everyone's time on the golf course by retrieving balls whenever he needs to be moving along and not slowing up play. He probably deserved to have his arm ripped off.

    Is this one situation where carrying a telescopic ball retriever would be exempt from GR B.itchmove status and deemed permissible?

    Wow, that re-defines my idea of a bad day. I kind of wonder what they do with the arm if it can't be re-attached. Do they offer to give it back to the guy? What would he do with it? Freeze it? Have a trophy made out of it? Save it for when he's out of dog food?

    I'd have the taxidermist fix it in a scratching position. Then I could continue to use it to scratch my back, ass and nuts with.

    Aligators live in South Carolina and really like to hang out at golf courses, but there have been no gator golfer attacks so far as I know. There are about four gators living on my local course biggest is about 8 foot. The biggest I have seen is about 15 foot 700 lb monster. Here is the real story about the noubs pictures which happened on Lake Moutrie. Noub now Shut the F u c k Up.

    Son says alligator victim checked lake before swim
    By Jill Coley
    The Post and Courier
    Tuesday, September 25, 2007

    The Post and Courier

    Brian Hedden, son of alligator-attack victim Bill Hedden, answers questions about his father's condition.
    Bill Hedden surveyed the water's edge at Short Stay Naval Recreational Park before easing into the shallows for a swim.

    Shortly after starting out, he stood to scan the surface of Lake Moultrie again. Seeing no threat, he continued.

    Five minutes later, a nearly 12-foot-long alligator tore his left arm off at the shoulder joint.

    Bill Hedden's 34-year-old son, Brian, spoke Monday about the moments leading up to his father's fateful encounter Sept. 16. He also spoke of his father's good spirits and quick recovery, but he declined to recount details of the attack.

    "It's really not a very sensational story," he said. "It was really just quick."

    Bill Hedden, 59, managed to break away from the alligator and make it to shore, where he collapsed into the hands of five nurses picnicking with the Bicol Association of Charleston, a Roman Catholic group.

    "If those nurses weren't there to do what they did, I personally believe he would have bled to death," Brian Hedded said.

    Emergency workers arrived five minutes after the attack.

    Medical University of South Carolina trauma and critical care surgeon Doug Norcross, who was part of the team caring for Bill Hedden, also praised the nurses at the scene. They responded quickly and correctly by applying pressure to the wound and stopping the bleeding, he said.

    "To me, these bystanders are the heroes of this story. Without their prompt action, Mr. Hedden would very well have bled to death before he reached our trauma center," Norcross said.

    Bill Hedden was airlifted to Medical University Hospital. He arrived at the hospital awake and talking, with stable vital signs. The tearing off of his left arm at the shoulder joint created a wound that has been the focus of his care, Norcross said. Bill Hedden is right-handed.

    "No effort was made to reattach the arm," Norcross said.

    S.C. Department of Natural Resources officers shot and killed the 550-pound reptile and removed the man's arm from its stomach. DNR officers bagged the arm and placed it in a picnicker's ice cooler and then rushed it to the hospital with a police escort.

    "When the limb was brought to us, due to the extensive damage both to the limb and the tissue of Mr. Hedden's shoulder, there was no hope of reattachment," Norcross said. Had the soft-tissue injury been less devastating, reattachment surgery could have been considered, he said.

    Doctors and staff focused on cleaning the wound, removing dead tissue and tying off arteries and veins. The wound was closed last week, and Norcross expects the patient to be discharged shortly. When fully healed, he will be referred for a prosthesis.

    The retired U.S. Navy master chief began swimming regularly for exercise about three months ago. Usually, he swam in a different part of the lake, his son said, but the afternoon of Sept. 16 the water was choppy.

    "We've lived here a long time," Brian Hedden said. "We're aware pretty much that if there's fresh water around, there's a chance of an alligator. He's extremely cautious about checking the shore."

    The family has visited Short Stay for about 25 years. "I was swimming there less than two weeks prior to the attack," Brian Hedden said. "It's an area we've never heard of or seen any alligators there."

    Signs near where the attack occurred warn of alligators and prohibit swimming and diving.

    Brian Hedden described the media attention surrounding his father as astounding. "Right now, we would like to maintain privacy somewhat as we embark down the trail of recovery," he said.

    He thanked the people involved in his father's care and all those who have expressed concern.

    As for Bill Hedden's passion for water, his son doubts the alligator will rob him of that, too. "We're a pretty water-friendly family," he said. "We have a boat, (we've) done some waterskiing, we like to have picnics on the lake. I can't see this keeping him away from water."

    It was so much better believing he had been trying to retrieve a golf ball before you posted the truth, GHD. Thanks for spoiling it for everybody.

    It also means this thread should have been posted in the Non-Golf Discussion section. jmtbkr, I applaud both your effort at deception and your essentially telling the mods to piss off by posting a Non-Golf thing in the Golf Forum.

    Which leads me to believe that dorkman's mea culpa was a deception fueled trolling or Omen 2 has finally been released from the mental hospital but the lobotomy was not so successful and he now beleives he is a korea likes bright blue Mizuno bags full of Grain Flowed Forgings and will be unmercifully dogged by Nah and his Power Bilts. Sooner will probably like this guy don't ask me why. The plot thickens.

    Not Ger maine to the argument is the belief that all GR members have erected aliases. These beliefs are like many phallus, long hard but premature. I for one have stayed true to my one and only alias Ground Hog Day Now STFU Noub

    I liked the thought of a guy arguing with his buddies trying to stop him putting his hand down a gator's throat saying "but it's a Titleist".

    GHD, I like your new avatar, it is perfect for you. I have a feeling you will hang on to this one for a while.

    I have had one of them bastards come out of a lake and swipe the chicken off of my hibachi BBQ. We had 4 adults standing on a camping/picnic table until he turned sideways and crunched the chicken and swollowed it whole. He stalked us the rest of the day from the lake. Those things do not fear people any more. I am a reptile guy as far as snakes and stuff, but I am not above slicing the head off of a rattlesnake with a spade, or making shoes out of a freaking over grown lizzard. If it can kill me or my kids, its fair game. Unfortunately those aggressive deadly gators are protected more than humans.

    Same problem in the Northern Territories in Australia. The salt water crocs have already taken over the estuaries and rivers and are now spilling over onto the beaches. A cull would be the sensible thing to do but of course the loony greenies won't allow that. Between the crocs on the shoreline and the sharks and poisonous box jellyfish out at sea the Northern territories are a great place to vacation these days. Just make sure you restrict any swimming activities to the hotel pool.

    Kiwi we have a butt load of gators here in South Carolina very few attacks on people, they do tend to like small and medium size dogs though. South Carolina opened up a hunting season about two years ago. Not sure how many they harvest biggest harvested so far is 16 foot 750 lbs. Gator meat is suppose to be good tasting plan on trying it out soon.

    NAH i know you would like my avatar great minds think alike.

    Rattlesnakes will come out of the ground here any day if they haven't already. That means being careful out on the golf course and in the brush. Later in the season they stay fairly concealed unless it got uncommonly cold the night before. But in April they're disoriented and lethargic and can be found in unpredictable places.

    When I first started playing golf, I was at Carmel Mountain Ranch early in the morning. CMR was once a great track but home development gobbled up too much of the course and it's fallen into disrepair. The place was buzzing when I got there.

    It had been cold the night before and so a full size rattler crawled up under a cart and around the engine, which I'd guess was warm at the time. Well, when the cart kid started it up in the barn and started driving it up the street to the clubhouse, the engine started getting a little too warm for the snake. Since the cart was moving, there was only one place for the rattler to go. Up the pedal hole in the floorboard . Apparently the kid saw the snake beginning to come up between his legs and jumped up hitting his head on the roof. He then rolled out of the cart onto the ground, got up and started running.

    Ken was the kid's name. I remember him being from Cleveland. If you're ever there FD (I wouldn't recommend it) it might be fun to mention it and see if anyone still remembers.

    Snakes are a real issue for golfers in Australia. We apparently have something like 6 of the top 10 deadliest snakes on the planet, so over here if you see a snake there is a good chance it can kill you. I've played some courses where they let the rough go on the boundaries of the course, and you don't go in there looking for your ball in summer. I was playing a course about an hour out of Sydney one day when we saw a brown snake slither across the front of the tee box about 20 metres in front of us. Brown snakes are one of the most agressive snakes in Oz and one of the deadliest. Even if you get to the hospital in time and live, their venom is a powerful neuro toxin that will fuk you up for the rest of your days.

    The Estuarine or Salt Water Crocs in OZ are known to be particularly a particularly aggressive species and grow up to be big MoFos. They are a major threat to humans. You don't mess with them. When you see No Swimming Due to Croc Warning signs you don't tempt fate unless you are crazy.

    He tried to warn you in his movies, but apparently you were not listening. You were too busy watching Linda Kozlowski's ass, weren't you? Uh huh, . . . . . . . that's what I thought.

Even if you get to the hospital in time and live, their venom is a powerful neuro toxin that will fuk you up for the rest of your days.

    Remind me again why I fuk'n LOVE living in Nova Scotia.

    No deadly snakes, no earthquakes, no tornadoes, just the occasional hurricane, a couple months of cold weather every year, and a few bugs that leave little more than itchy welts.

    You can have your ecological death trap.

    When I first started playing golf, I was at Carmel Mountain Ranch early in the morning. CMR was once a great track but home development gobbled up too much of the course and it's fallen into disrepair. The place was buzzing when I got there.

    It had been cold the night before and so a full size rattler crawled up under a cart and around the engine, which I'd guess was warm at the time. Well, when the cart kid started it up in the barn and started driving it up the street to the clubhouse, the engine started getting a little too warm for the snake. Since the cart was moving, there was only one place for the rattler to go. Up the pedal hole in the floorboard . Apparently the kid saw the snake beginning to come up between his legs and jumped up hitting his head on the roof. He then rolled out of the cart onto the ground, got up and started running.

    Ken was the kid's name. I remember him being from Cleveland. If you're ever there FD (I wouldn't recommend it) it might be fun to mention it and see if anyone still remembers.
    We like to think we are above animals but we gave some very basic survival instincts. Having working in the woods there are two behaviors that come without thought; one is the bee dance the other is the snake dance. They are distinctively different but you'll know it when you see them.

    What is very funny is the girlish screams from very butch men on either of them. Nothing funnier than seeing a 2 bill plus man doing a high step dance from a snake screaming like a little girl. The best part is the snake dance usually happens first thing in the morning so you have a full day of comic relief. Bees aren't as fun 'cause they usually succeed in nailing you. A black face hornet in the fall will see you at about 30 yards. If you don't know what a "bee line" means, you will after it nails you 4 or 5 times. They accelerate from 0 to 40 mph is a second.

    With rattlers the adults are usually more bark than bite unless you at plucking with them or happen to step on them. They understand that venom is food and life. The young ones are stupid and will strike and unload all their venom into you.

    Several times we decided to harvest a rattlesnake for dinner. They're a little rubbery but absorb oils and garlic pretty well. They sure are easy to skin.

    Guys working in my yard killed a couple of big fat gopher snakes and left them on the patio. I presume they'd have been safe to eat, but as they had been lying in the sun for 8-10 hours I didn't want to risk it. I'll bet there was well over a pound of meat in each snake.

    In all of my years working in the field in new Mexico, Texas, ok pan hadle and eastern Oregon, I've only seen two people hit by rattlers. Both were phucking with them. They rattle for a reason. Just stir clear or shot then with a snake load.

    At the end of this month, you can come down to a town in SW Oklahoma called, Mangum, OK. They have a Rattle Snake Round-up, a big festival, and rattlesnake is always served at one of the food trailers. As they say, it tastes like chicken.

    3 feet clearance and you're safe. So if you make the kill or pin them down for the kill when they're 4-5 feet away, you're plenty safe. Once they've announced themselves, you have to be pretty dim to get bit. My close calls happened when I didn't look where I was going and got near or inside the three feet. On the running trails in the canyon here, when they're crossing the trails in the afternoon, we just jump over them. If they aren't coiled you're safe.

    I don't hassle them anymore, now that I've had a chance to cook them up a few of times.

    I had a BlackLab get hit twice (on different occasions) by pigmy rattlesnakes. The venom was like a yellow foam. her face swelled up to twice its size. She survived just fine but died a couple of years later for unrelated issues.

    No they move very quickly especially the tail but tend to eat only things they can swallow whole. I have caught several up to 6 foot and they are really strong. Most will leave you alone unless they have been fed don't be around that one.

    Your even safer at 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500,... X feet.

    Like I said, the adults generally warn and don't want to strike you because you're not food. Obviously if you startle them, like step on them running up a trail or climbing over rocks, then who knows what they will do. I've been told that even if you are hit by an adult it will just strike and release. Where the juvenile will hit and hold pumping you full of toxins.

    I was working with some rednecks in the panhadle of Texas on a rail job. Every morning we would see many snakes on the ballast trying to get warm. These two would kill them and put them in the back of our truck bed. they skinned them and sold them for money.One wasn't dead yet. And he reached in to get something and got nailed in the arm. 50 minute drive to the hospital. He was in some serious pain. He spent the night there and was sick for days. I kept telling them to leave the snakrs alone. if the snake hit a vein or artery he would have been dead in minutes.

    snakes are more scared of us than we are of them. For good reason with people like your cracker work mates running around. I think it goes without saying that it was unlucky for the rest of us (and the human gene pool) that the snake missed the arteries and veins.

    There was a hilarious snake story here a few years back. This drunken redneck got bitten 9 times by a King Brown snake (inside top 5 deadliest snakes in the world) he had put in a sack to put in his local hotel's fish tank. Apparently after it got loose and bit him he got it back in the sack, but then decided to put his hand in and got bitten another 8 times. He was in a coma for 6 weeks and had an arm amputated.

    Take note those of you who want to get acknowledgement from fred3. Start a discussion about snakes and fred3 will come out to defend his species.

    Poe, only total yayhoos don't chop the head off. Snake bites like that are pure Darwinism. I've never seen the little guys but I've heard plenty of stories. It's hard to separate fact from urban legend with them. Yes, the legend goes they can't regulate their venom. How do you know that? You heard it somewhere, right? It's false, I have a reliable source on this.

    For someone who claims disdain for GR, fred3 sure hangs around this place alot. Hitting on a newbie further devalues his prior acknowledgements, btw.

    I don't know. It's just what the Doc said when he was treating the yahoo. They weren't chopping the heads off. They wanted the heads on for the skins to look cool. I laughed at the guy until it became obvious fast that he was going to need medical attention and we were miles from a doc and some of it was back country driving.
