Thursday's first round of the Honda Classic was like a trip to the zoo for Sergio Garcia. It seemed like everywhere he turned, he was running into animals of some shape or size.
The first one Garcia encountered was an eagle with this impressive approach shot on the par-4 second hole. He pretty much commands the wind to help his ball, and it obeys nicely.
The next encounter was a little more unsettling for the Spaniard. His drive at No. 6 found a shallow water hazard to the left of the fairway. Garcia took off his shoes and socks, rolled up his pants, and prepared to join the alligators in their natural habitat.
Watch as Garcia casts a wary eye behind him as he tries to settle down and hit the shot.
Fortunately, Garcia escaped without being bitten by an unfriendly gator. Unfortunately, he didn't escape the hole without carding a bogey.
