This is the remarkable moment that a golfer made a shot over the head of a seven-foot alligator who was strolling in front of him on a Florida fairway.
Steel Lafferty was at the ChampionGate Country Club in Osceola County when the reptile attempted to crash its game on Wednesday.
The large alligator demolished the professional wake-boarder just before he was about to hit the ball.
Although he was meters away, Laffety walked up and sent the ball over the creature that seemed relatively unaffected.

There are five million alligators in the United States, the majority of which, around 1.3 million, live in the state of Florida Board of Tourism reports.
The reptiles live in all 67 counties of Florida, according to the Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Visitors are advised to stay at least 50 feet away from the reptiles at all times.
If one is seen, it is advisable to call the annoying alligator line, which will send a professional trapper to catch the creature.
