A giant alligator interrupted a golf tournament in South Carolina, sneaking onto the links and sauntering by stunned golfers who watched in amazement as the dinosaur-like creature walked by.

Players teed off at the 10th Annual Celebrity Golf Invitational on Kiawah Island on Monday, but the star of the competition wasn’t a golfer. It was the huge gator that showed up on the links and strolled through the course like a golfer on tour.

Instagram user mayorjuan posted a recording of the huge beast.

The Post and Courier's headline read "It was literally a dinosaur."

The huge beast eventually disappeared into a nearby lagoon, where golfers had been standing a short time earlier.
