Python on the golf course

1952: Finding that her golf ball had come to rest on top of a 10-foot python, Mrs. Bobbie Pritchard shot the python and then continued to play the ball from on top of the (now dead) snake.

I guess that taking a penalty and using a new ball was, for whatever reason, out of the question.

A 10 foot python . . .

Isn't it just a little bit insensitive to measure a snake in 'feet'?

Who carries a firearm in their golf bag?
