ORLANDO, Fla. – It looked like a risky maneuver, but Cody Gribble barely even blinked.
Gribble was in the midst of a tough round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational when he snuck up on a gator sunning itself just left of the sixth fairway at Bay Hill. With a swift thwack on the tail, Gribble startled the gator and then nonchalantly watched it jump back into the water lining the hole.
“The gator looked like he needed some exercise,” Gribble said after closing out a 5-over 77. “I guess I was trying to get some adrenaline going somehow, but I wasn’t really afraid of it.”
Gators need exercise too, no biggie guys. https://t.co/K97j4WHuVP— Cody Gribble (@CodyGribble) March 17, 2017
