Video shows gigantic reptile on fairway before golfer grabs its tail and sends it rushing into bunker
A GROUP of amateur golfers got the fright of their lives when their leisurely round was rudely interrupted – by a HUGE python.
The gigantic snake invaded the fairway before slithering into a bunker on the course in Zimbali in South Africa.
Unbelievably, one very brave (or very daft) golfer tried to grab the monstrous beast by the tail – and then jumped back in terror when it snappily recoiled!
And, incredibly, it turns out the giant reptile is a regular feature at the east coast course just north of Durban.

“We do know that it hangs around near a water source on the course,” golf director Kyle Caitano told local media.
“It is quite rare to see it in the open. He went over the fairway, through a bunker and into the rough.”
It’s not the first time golfers in tropical – and non-tropical – climes have had to deal with terrifying beasts.
Last month Cody Gribble showed nerves of steel when he casually scared off an alligator that was near his ball in Florida.
And former Southamton footballer Matt Le Tissier stumbled into a scary snake while playing a course in SURREY last year.
