Turtle At The Players Championship Is Belly Flopped Off The Course


Cowabunga, dude!

During the second round of The Players Championship a volunteer had to remove an angry turtle from the 16th fairway.  The volunteer got down close to the water but the turtle still made a pretty good *thud* noise as it belly flopped into the water.
