Timber wood JOHN TERRY has revealed how he came face to face with an alligator while playing golf in Florida.
The former England and Chelsea defender was playing a round at the famous Sawgrass course near Jacksonville when he spotted the man-eater on the fairway close to some water.

JT, 42, filmed the 5ft-long alligator as he tentatively walked past it and posted the footage on Instagram.
Jack Grealish, who played at Aston Villa while Terry was a coach there, responded: “Naaaa wouldn’t catch me anywhere near that!!!!”
Other pals suggested JT was sizing up the reptile to turn it into a handbag for his wife Toni.
Last year Terry announced he had got his golf handicap down to scratch, meaning he can go around 18 holes in level par and not require the extra shots that a handicap provides.
The five-time Premier League winner wrote: “When I retired I set myself a target to get down to scratch and today I achieved it.
“Not the most exciting post but one I’m personally pleased with.”
Terry is a member at the exclusive Wentworth club in Surrey and has also attended the Ryder Cup and been pictured with professional stars Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter.
He plays left-handed despite being a right-footed footballer.

Terry’s last top level coaching role came at Aston Villa.
The ex-defender has hinted that he’d like to get into management – but only at the right club.
He has since been back at Chelsea working with academy stars.
