WATCH: Caddie takes on an alligator at the 15th hole of the RBC Heritage

‘Danger’ is Kip Henley’s middle name…

FENDING OFF ALLIGATORS definitely isn’t in a caddie’s job description but Kip Henley was willing to go the extra mile at Harbour Town yesterday.

When Texan Brian Gay found where his third shot on the par-5 15th hole had landed, there was a sizeable alligator casually lying next to it. Gay would probably have been given a free drop-shot under the ‘dangerous situation’ ruling but, instead, his caddie opted to dice with danger and proceeded to shove the reptile back into the water.

“I wasn’t going to go near him, but my caddie’s not scared of him,” Gay told “It took at least 10 minutes and he just wouldn’t move.

I’ve never played with anybody that had that happen, nor has it happened to me.”
