STUNNED golfers nearly choked on their tee when a live SHARK dropped from the sky on to the mid­dle of their course.

The fish had punc­ture wounds where it ap­peared a bird had snagged it from the ocean a whop­ping FIVE MILES away.

The 2ft long leop­ard shark flapped around near the 12th hole be­fore be­ing plucked off the grass by work­ers at the San Juan Hills Golf Club, Cal­i­for­nia.

It was stuck in a bucket of wa­ter us­ing sea salt from the kitchen and pho­tographed be­fore be­ing re­leased back into the sea.

Melissa McCor­mack, op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor, said: “It was just wrig­gling around. He needed to get to the ocean right away.

“Hon­estly, this is the weird­est thing that’s hap­pened here.”
