AVONDALE, LA (WVUE) -

While the competition was fierce between the golfers in final round of the 2015 Zurich Classic, arguably the most exciting battle came Sunday on the 17th hole from a couple of reptiles. 

An alligator emerged from the water near the 17th fairway, but it was closely followed by another gator. A fight between the two quickly ensued before they returned to the water. In the process, what appears to be a television cable gets pulled into the water as well. 

Seeing an abundance of wildlife on or near the TPC Louisiana Course in Avondale is common, but seeing them fight amongst themselves, nearly damage equipment isn't.

The scuffle brought excitement from nearby onlookers who shot video of the two gators.
