Thanks to Milton Bradley and Flight of the Conchords, hippos don't instill the same fear in people as an alligator or bear. Yet, as a child, I remember a guide at the zoo telling us that these beasts are actually one of the most dangerous animals in the world. (A position that Wikipedia graphically confirms.)

Golfer Brandon Stone must not be privy to this knowledge. For instead of freaking out, Stone amusedly gazed at an incoming hippo during his final round at the Alfred Dunhill Championship:

Stone finished with a final-round 67 to win the tournament by seven shots, which makes sense. If you can confront a 3,500-pound hippo without flinching, staring down a bunch of golfers is cream cheese.
