fight night

This hippo showdown on a golf course is the best golf fight since Rory vs. Grayson

Golf fights have never been more plentiful. We’ve got Brooks Koepka vs. Brandel Chamblee, Jay Monahan vs. … well, everyone, Rory McIlroy vs. Grayson Murray and now we have two hippos duking it out right off the green. At this point, it wouldn’t shock us if this incident occurred at Oakdale Country Club.

We could kowtow around the clip and make some more PGA-LIV references, but let’s just get to the video. You’re here to see hippos fight, and that’s what we want to give you.

These golfers are certainly lucky to have not been the target for these hippopotamuses or we probably would never have seen this clip. “Good thing for the golfers, these two hippo bulls were preoccupied with each other,” @natureismetal said. “If not, the risk of being charged would be a solid reason to stay far away. Adult bull hippos can weigh between 2,870 and 3,300 pounds (1300-1500 kg). Despite their size, they can run quite fast - up to 20 miles per hour (32km/h).”

We’re not totally sure why these men—of course it’s men—are standing so close to this nature brouhaha. Maybe back up a few steps. Your phone’s camera almost certainly has a zoom function.

Random Insta person and golf’s new poet laureate @Lobsta_Larry puts it best in his comment: “Casually hanging out 20 yards away from two Volkswagen sized murder puppy’s is putting yourself in a spot for a Darwin Award.”
