Kip Henley vs. Alligator: Brian Gay's Caddie Fight Off Alligator At RBC Heritage (VIDEO)

Sure, the life of a caddie seems mundane. But if you happen to believe that there's no excitement in the job, you might change your mind after watching Kip Henley in the video above.

During the first round of the RBC Heritage tournament, Brian Gay barely avoided hitting his third shot on a par-5 in the water hazard. But he was forced to hold off from attempting his fourth shot at first, since you know, there was a 10-foot alligator invading the hole.

Luckily Gay's caddie, Henley, was there to take care of it. Henley used a rake and chased off the alligator back into the nearby pond.

"I wasn't going to go near him, but my caddie's not scared of him. It took at least 10 minutes and he just wouldn't move," Gay said, via Myrtle Beach Online. "I don't know what we would have done if we didn’t get the gator to move. I've never played with anybody that had that happen, nor has it happened to me."

Henley had an idea of what he was getting himself into, telling FOX Sports that "they won't come at you when they're turned the other way."

It turns out that Gay could have taken a drop without a penalty since it was a dangerous situation, but he didn't know his options and played from there, resulting in a bogey-6.

Gay is now 1-over for the tournament. Click HERE to follow the tournament leader board.
