Gator interrupts Kiawah Island fundraiser golf tournament

Golfers at The River Course on Kiawah Island need to watch their backs. There's a big issue with the course and it could take a chomp out of their performance.

The photo above was taken by local event photographer Carrie Moores during a tournament Monday.

The giant gator snuck up on golfers going over their scores during the Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic's 10th Annual Celebrity Golf Invitational. They had no idea they were in danger, but were warned after a few photos were taken.

Organizers say the annual fundraiser benefits uninsured patients who live or work on Johns, James, and Wadmalaw Islands and receive free patient care at the clinic, which is based on Johns Island.

The event raised enough money to support 3,800 visit to the clinic in 2017.
