ESTERO, Fla. — A Florida alligator completed a golf foursome yesterday... sort of.

Marc Goldstein and his two playing partners were surprised when they saw the gator grab his golf ball after an errant shot.

The group was playing at Pelican Sound Golf Club in Estero when Marc hit his ball near one of the ponds.

He started recording with his cellphone when it became apparent the gator wasn't giving up the ball.

His golf buddies erupted in laughter as the gator slid back into the water.

There's no word if Marc got a mulligan after that.
