The wildlife you encounter is one of the many charms of playing golf all over the world.
In some cases, however, umm, not so much.
Take Malaysia for instance, where the PGA Tour is this week for the CIMB Classic.
Before the start of Friday's second round, a six-foot python had to be removed from the TPC Kuala Lumpur golf course.
Photos from the PGA Tour Twitter account show the python on a green before it is eventually caught:
If photos like that aren't motivation enough to stay in the fairways and hit the greens -- where you can actually see and make a conscious decision to stay away from a python -- then I don't know what is.
