Don't let anyone tell you that monsters don't exist.

Sage Stryczny captured the short video of the large gator soaking up some sunshine and posted it to his Facebook page Saturday.

Sage Stryczny managed to get footage of the beast, who is believed to be around 15 feet long and frequently visits the same course in Tampa Bay, Florida. "Me and my dad were about to hit off the tee on a par 3, and we saw him laying right on the green".

Another video of Chubbs went viral in 2016.

Google Maps improves real-time journey sharing
The company today added the ability to share the progress of your journey in real time with your friends and family on iOS. Google today announced a new feature in Google Maps that will improve the journey sharing experience.

Should any other golfers see Chubbs - or any other gator, for that matter - on the golf course, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission recommends keeping a safe distance.

In case you didn't know, Chubbs is named after the character in the film "Happy Gilmore.' In the film, there's a golfer who loses his hand to an alligator". "He doesn't bother anybody and they don't bother him".

In any event, the oversized creature didn't eat anyone or even come close to doing so during his sighting this week, instead moseying down the course with frequent breaks along the way.
