Kris Munroe Wrestles An Alligator
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Somebody doesn't want an LPGA pro to win a major golf tournament. Sabrina,Kelly and Kris are called in to find out who is trying to kill her and why in Winning Is For Losers.

Kris goes to watch her longtime friend, Linda Frye, play in a professional golf tournament. A sniper takes a shot at Linda at the close of the round, and she admits that someone has been trying to force her to withdraw.Charlie's private investigators check into the hotel near the course to watch over Linda, and someone throws a brick through her window. Bosley strikes up a conversation with Donna Dawson, a veteran player who is Linda's chief rival for the tourney title. She admits that she would do anything to win the prestigious event for a third time.The individuals harassing Linda transport alligators from a nearby swamp to put in the creek, and sabotage a bridge. Kris has to wrestle an alligator until Bill Montclair, Linda's manager and attorney, arrives to help them. Sabrina catches a strange man in an army jacket eavesdropping as Linda and the Angels talk at the hotel. He has been lurking around for days, but claims that he is just a fan in search of an autograph.

Just like what I have stated in my review of the previous episode "Angels In Spring Time",the Kris Munroe Myth has begun.In this episode,she finds herself wrestling with an alligator.Interesting!!!LOL In addition to that,the writers have rehashed a plot similar to Game, Set, Death from the previous season.This time around,the story involves someone trying to kill a female golf pro to prevent her from winning a tournament instead of a tennis player.
