If you're not a fan of reptiles, you may want to stay clear of Myakka Pines Golf Club in Englewood, Fla.
Last week, the golf club posted pictures via its Facebook page of a massive -- and I mean massive -- alligator taking a casual stroll on the green.
Check out these posts from the Myakka Pines Golf Club Facebook page:
Umm... No thank you. Let's pick it up and move on...
Unless it's match play. Then you have to make your opponent putt, right?
The PGA Tour visits the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla., for the Valspar Championship.
This is one of the most difficult courses on the PGA Tour, primarily because of its brutal final three holes, known as the Snake Pit.
The Snake Pit begins with a narrow, dogleg right, long par-4 that hugs water. The difficult 215-yard par-3 17th is next before the round ends with the uphill 445-yard par-4 18th.
Australia's John Senden returns as the defending champion, but the field is loaded with formidable challengers.
Here are the five you'll want to keep an eye on.
5. Jim Furyk
Best finish in 2014-15 season: T7 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am
Reason to watch: A winner at Innisbrook in 2010 -- his first of three "Ws" that season on his way to winning the FedExCup -- Furyk has been fantastic in three starts this season. In three starts, Furyk has yet to finish worse than a tie for 14th. Since winning the Valspar Championship in 2010, Furyk has finished no worse than T20 in the event. He also lost in a playoff in 2012. He may not win, but expect Furyk to have a strong showing this week.
4. Luke Donald
Best finish in 2014-15 season: T7 Honda Classic
Reason to watch: By his standards, it's been a rough couple of years for Donald, the former world No. 1. Regardless of that, Innisbrook always seems to bring out the best in Donald. Along with winning in 2012 -- his last win on the PGA Tour -- Donald tied for sixth in 2010, and tied for fourth in both 2013 and 2014. His trend of solid play at Innisbrook will continue this week.
3. Jordan Spieth
Best finish in 2014-15 season: T4 Northern Trust Open
Reason to watch: Simply put, Spieth is my favorite young gun in the game today. He's incredibly consistent and just always hovering around the first page of leaderboards. I just want to see him close the deal more frequently -- no doubt he wants to do the same thing, but man, it's not easy out there! In two prior Valspar Championship starts, Spieth has finished T20 and T7. The course clearly fits his eye -- and there aren't many out there that don't. Spieth has been piling up the top 10s for a while now. Soon he'll be piling up wins.
2. Gary Woodland
Best finish in 2014-15 season: T2 CIMB Classic
Reason to watch: Woodland showed some promise early in the season with a T2 at the CIMB Classic and a T3 at the Sony Open in Hawaii, but has cooled off a bit since. He could get back on track this week at the Valspar Championship, a tournament in which he won back in 2011 -- his first PGA Tour win. A year ago, Woodland tied for eighth at Innisbrook. He's one of the longest hitters in the game, which comes in handy at this course, and has put in a lot of work on his short game. With injuries hopefully behind him, Woodland could be on the cusp of a break out season.
1. Adam Scott
Best finish in 2014-15 season: T4 WGC-Cadillac Championship
Reason to watch: Until last week, we hadn't seen Scott on the PGA Tour since early November when he tied for 12th in the WGC-HSBC Champions. And things looked different at Doral... Rather than a long, broomstick putter, Scott was back to the conventional putter with an unconventional grip. If last week was any indication, it doesn't look as though Scott has anything to worry about once the anchoring ban goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. He tied for fourth at Doral, three-putting just once, making 87 percent of his putts from inside 10 feet, including an incredible 52-of-52 from five feet and in. If Scott is strutting with that kind of putting confidence come Masters week, look out.
Here's how my five to watch fared at the WGC-Cadillac Championship:
5. Paul Casey -- T38
4. Justin Rose -- 55
3. Bubba Watson -- 3
2. Dustin Johnson -- Winner
1. Patrick Reed -- T23

My wife Randi is an avid golfer who loves the game. We are expecting our first child but that hasn’t stopped Randi from enjoying the game she loves.
Golf is a great way to enjoy being outside and get good exercise while pregnant. Be sure to consult with your physician before participating in any physical activity when pregnant.
My wife’s doctor loved and endorsed the idea of Randi continuing to play golf throughout her pregnancy. It is a good way to keep your core strong since most core exercises should be put on hold during this time.
What you need to know
The biggest keys we have worked on with Randi’s swing are balance and not over swinging. Be sure to spend some time warming up before you play.
Start with pitch shots and gradually increase the length of your swing. This will help get your core loose before making full swings. It is also a great way to find out where the limit of your swing is that day.
Randi’s swing has gotten a little bit shorter as her range of motion is slightly limited, with this has come a little bit of distance loss with her irons. Taking one extra club with your irons will solve this issue. Do not try to over swing or hit the ball harder as this will have an effect on your balance.
Depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy may have an effect on how long your swing is. You may go from full swings to three-quarter length swings and possibly even half-swings.
Listen to your body and don’t try to make long swings like you typically would.
Tempo is extremely important here. Since your swing may be getting shorter you may feel the need to swing faster so be aware of this and swing with a smooth and relaxed tempo. Focusing mainly on balance and tempo will help you make solid contact with your clubs.
Try to hold your finish a little longer than you typically would, this is a great way to ensure good balance and tempo. Again, listen to your body and don’t over-do it.
Some days you may have the stamina to play all 18 holes, other days maybe 9 holes is enough and some days maybe you skip a hole or two throughout the round. You don’t have to put golf on hold when you’re pregnant, just being out there continuing to enjoy the game you love is the key.
