    Did you guys see this? A spectator at the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Naples was bitten by a water moccasin. She said she felt something bite her and when she looked down she saw the snake coiled up. Apparently, it was a "dry bite" and no venom was released. How bizarre is that?

    This is not a snake you want to mess with.....cottonmouths are very agressive and will attack...........she is one very lucky lady.....I am suprised that she did not see it....must have been sunning on a warm cart path or walk area......

    very scary- Not something I think of when playing Fl courses - gators more so.  In Az its rattlers now have to be more careful when looking for balls in Florida as well.

    I wonder how quickly Norman, Franklin Templeton, and Tiburon will offer a monetary settlement. I'm sure they paid the hospital bills.

    Have you ever seen those red fire ants they have in Florida? Man, they pack a serious bite. For that matter, the insects period!

    I played Old Hickory (Lorton, VA) earlier this year and a huge black snake came slithering across the green as we were trying to putt. Nothing nice!

    And as you know Chuck, the Eastern diamondback rattler is also a resident of the South Carolina shores...

    I've seen a bunch of snakes while playing golf and I try to be careful and watch out for them but, I've had a few close calls.
