I'm guessing Western Diamondback.

Hole 17 Century Park in Greer, asst TD gets <no joke> pee'd on by a snake in the tree above the teepad. Would not believe it if I wasn't at tourny HQ a couple dozen feet away and come over to see what the yelling was about.

We boosted our list to about a dozen species this weekend---and still no venomous ones.

That's the most important part. Snakes usually startle me more so than scare me, but if I came close to one I could ID as venomous (like a copperhead, cottonmouth, rattler, or coral snake), I'd piss my pants so bad, you might as well update the course conditions to, "Soaked... bettter give it another day or two to dry out."

LOL. One bad thing about seeing a venomous snake is that you tend to be nervous walking through that particular spot for the next 97 years.

Not that the others can't do damage. We have black racers, often about 6' long. True to their name, they can move amazingly fast, particularly for animals without feet. I spotted one on the road and thought I'd see if I could outrun it. So I ran right at it---and instead of sprinting away, it coiled and stood its ground. For a quarter-second I contemplating flying.

Saw my first Bull Snake of the year at Diamond X on Sat at our first tourney of the year. Just a cute little guy, maybe 3'. Didn't have time to get a pic as 2 minutes had just been called for the second round...next time.
