Diving for golf balls in lakes and ponds within golf courses is good business. There’s even a TV show about the occupation coming this fall (shameless company plug).
But it’s also dangerous, and at the top of the list for on-the-job dangers are gators. Stephen Martinez knows all too well. For the second time in more than 20 years of diving for golf balls, the Florida man was bitten this week by a gator.
The incident took place at Bonaventure Country Club in Weston, Florida, and Martinez did not suffer any serious injuries — nor is he deterred from diving for more golf balls.
