A Polk County golfer is recovering after being attacked by an alligator.
Al Miller, 75, was fishing a ball out of a water hazard at a Lake Wales golf course when a nine foot alligator latched onto him.
Miller said the gator had a tight hold on his arm, and then for some reason just let go.
His friends were then able to pull him to safety.
The gator was later caught and killed.
