Goliath, the 15-foot alligator, defends Myakka Pines turf in golf course fight


SHARE THIS STORY

Remember Goliath, the 15-foot alligator who roams Florida's Myakka Pines Golf Club? Of course you do.

Well, over the weekend, apparently another gator thought it could step into Goliath's territory and not pay rent. Goliath apparently wasn't having that, climbing -- yes, climbing -- out of a water hazard on the course to take on the invading gator in the middle of the fourth fairway on the club's Blue Course.

Golfer Lynn Sarles, who was on the green at the nearby sixth hole, took pictures of the fight, sharing them with the course and other media outlets.
