Gribble slaps a gator

Watch PGA star Cody Gribble walk up and slap an alligator at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Texan wasn’t having the best day around Bay Hill, so he decided to go have a little fun with one of the course’s alligators that was catching a few rays on the banks of the sixth hole…

Gribble certainly has some guts. And his reason? Well, he needed some adrenaline…

“I didn’t even realize it was on video,” quipped the 26-year-old, who would card a five over 77 on Thursday.

“Gator looked like he needed some exercise, I don’t know. He was sitting right there in the way and I guess I was struggling today, I wanted to get some adrenaline going somehow.”
