Albert Miller, age 75, grabbed and dragged by alligator while playing golf

Lake Ashton Golf and Country Club — that 15th hole is a killer.

Florida man is recovering at home today after a nine-foot alligator interrupted his golf outing  by trying to eat him.

“You’ll never get me to look at a gator, touch a gator or eat a gator,” Albert Miller said.

Albert Miller, 75, was playing in a four-ball tournament with friends when an alligator emerged from a canal and tried to drag him into the water.

The alligator launched at him from under the water and got him by his left knee.

“He lifted me up three feet and slammed me down,” Miller said.

His buddies tried to pull him free, but the gator clamped on harder.

As the animal started dragging Miller into the water, Miller prayed for a miracle.

He got one.

“He let me go,” Miller said. “I was three feet from my life. He had me submerged up to my belt buckle. That was my miracle of the month.”
