Boo Weekley, Alligator Whisperer
By Stephanie Wei under PGA Tour

Outdoor expert Boo Weekley found some trouble in the hazard on the fourth hole at TPC Louisiana, but in between shots, he fits in a few alligator calls before noting that it’s too early for them to be out. I didn’t even know there was a gator call! In the video below (at about the 2:20 mark), Boo demonstrates and shares how we, too, can learn.

“You just gotta get out there and listen to them,” said Boo. “You just listen to what’s out there, like crickets and frogs. You listen to all the alligators make the noise that they make — it’s pretty easy once you figure out which is making what.”

I’ll agree with the commentator on this one. If I can hear the noises gators are making, then I’m too close for my own comfort!

Boo posted a double on that hole and he’s three-over through 11, five-over total at the Zurich Classic. With the cut estimated at even par, he’ll probably have plenty of time to listen to gators and other wildlife creatures down in the bayou this weekend.
