Massive Diamondback Rattlesnake Halts Play At Florida Course

It takes a lot for golfers to halt their rounds. Many are willing to play fight through rain, snow, even natural disasters, to complete their round, so we know it takes something special for a group of hardcore golfers to stop in their tracks and move on to the next hole.

A diamondback rattlesnake seems to have fit that bill earlier this week in Florida.

Instagram user Logan Ungerer captured a massive snake crossing a green at Mangrove Bay & Cypress Links Golf Course in St. Petersburg on Tuesday that would make any serious golfer pick up their ball and proceed to the next tee.

Take a look at the two videos and still shot of the rattler by scrolling through the embedded post below.
