Really Brave PGA Golfer Smacks Gator to Get It Off the Course

But he might be closing in on cult hero status, after the PGA Tour player convinced an alligator to leave the course at the Arnold Palmer PGA Tour event in Florida.

With one hand hand in the pocket of his white slacks, he walks up to the prehistoric beast, gives it a quick tap on the tail, and watches it scamper into the pond by the fairway.

"When you're not going all that well, at four over par, you take some chances", analyst Gary Koch said of the fearless Gribble.

According to Golf Week, the gator was 8 feet long, which makes the 26-year-old look even more courageous, considering he's not even 6 feet tall. Golfer Cody Gribble walked up on one of these fine creatures on the edge of a fairway and chose to get it out of there.

"I've done it a couple times before".

"If you think if that's insane, you should meet my father, Bill Gribble. He was sitting right there in the way and I guess I was struggling today, I wanted to get some adrenaline going somehow". He loves all types of animals.

"I wasn't too anxious about it at the time", he said. But I wasn't really afraid of it. ... We have caught them before, I've caught them before, fishing before, too.

"They're not going to catch you a couple of steps down", Gribble told the AP.

And for those who have never had the experience, Gribble said the skin of a gator is "incredibly clean".
