RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Golfers are used to hazards, obstacles like sand traps, though rarely an obstacle as interesting as a shark.

A club employee quickly put the flopping fish into a golf cart and then in a bucket of homemade seawater before taking it to a nearby beach, where the shark swam away. It's MORNING EDITION.
