An alligator in Florida decided to join a game of golf and the moment was caught on video. 

Golfers who were playing at Plantation Bay Golf and Country Club in Ormond Beach, Florida, were joined by the gator, who picked up one of their golf balls in its mouth.

In the footage, one of the golfers explains: "Adam just hit the green and a gator just had the ball in his mouth. He just spit it out."
