Golfer attacked by gator at Magnolia Landing gets free clubs

Published: Updated:

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. Tony Aarts credited his trusty Cleveland Golf putter with saving his life.

Aarts used his putter to subdue a 10-foot gator that attacked him several weeks ago as he was approaching the fourth hole at Magnolia Landing Golf & Country Club.

Cleveland Golf heard about Aarts’ near-death experience and decided to not only give him a new putter, but custom clubs with gator etched into the wedges and a reminder of who won the fight.

“It did save my life. There’s no doubt about that,” Aarts said.
