A number of alligators on the golf course have been spotted recently, but could any of these animals actually affect the 2017 PGA Tour?
Over the past several years, a number of alligators have been spotted on golf courses throughout the United States. These large reptiles have not attacked any golfers (at least not yet) but they do pose some serious risks to players.
Could alligators on the golf course pose any problems for the 2017 PGA Tour? Probably not. The vast majority of these cases are in Southern States, particularly Florida. Only one tournament in the 2017 PGA Tour will be taking place in Florida, and it seems likely that event organizers would be quick to move any reptiles that stray onto the course.
The Players Championship is scheduled to take place in Point Vedra Beach in Florida this May in its flagship event. You can bet that officials will be keeping an eye out for any gators. Unfortunately, no online sportsbooks in the UK offer odds for this event.
Golf tournaments to bet on in 2017
One of the best golf tournaments to bet on this year is the US Open. This tournament is scheduled to take place on June 18th, and a number of betting favorites have already emerged. At the top of the odds are Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, and Jason Day with odds of 8/1. Tiger Woods is a great golf betting underdog option with odds of 50/1.
It seems unlikely that alligators on the golf course will affect any tournaments this year.
