Golf-Weekley wouldn't say Boo to a Snake
Boo Weekley is doing his best to become the Bear Grylls of the golf world after removing a poisonous snake from the course at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida yesterday.

Not content with having boxed orangutans and growing up wrestling alligators off his grandmother's porch, the two-time PGA Tour winner also took a succesful stab at snake charming removing a poisonous water moccasin from the grounds.

"He blended in perfectly with the grass, wasn't but 18 inches long, but he was good enough that he could have bit you and hurt you pretty bad," said Weekley.

"A guy come running up to us right before we teed off and when we got done I told the guy not to worry about it. I took my driver and turned it over and just moved him."

The 39-year-old native Floridian didn't just use his clubs for removing serpents, of course, he also fired a four-under 66, nailing six birdies and two bogeys, while other more high-profile players like Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy struggled to shoot 70s.

"Right now my putter is feeling good, and if I can get it feeling good and keep it feeling good, I think I'll be right there," Weekley said.

Here at the Honda Classic on a sponsor's exemption, Weekley has already shown his worth as a an amateur snake wrangler not to mention his unmissable press conferences which are chock-a-block with quotable gold, including on his current healthy state.

"I'm not eating good, but I feel good."
