Golfer casually deals with alligator on course!

While Gribble's animal-handling skills proved exemplary on Thursday, his golf game left much to be desired.

Nothing demonstrates that more than Cody Gribble.

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.

A video shows a very fearless sole, pro golfer Gribble, walking up to a large gator lying by the edge of the fairway and giving the reptile a little "love" tap on its tail, according to Fanrag Sports Network.

Peterson has also expressed interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders due to their solid offensive line. Latavius Murray's addition gives the Vikings a big time weapon.

"I wasn't really afraid of it", Gribble told reporters when asked about it after the round.

Crazily enough, Gribble revealed it's NOT the first time he's done that.

That didn't phase 26-year-old Cody Gribble one bit. The surprised gator scurried back into the water, while Gribble continued down the fairway. Next time you see him, have an interview with him.

"I wasn't too anxious about it. Those guys, I mean, it's like a jolt, it's quick, they're not going to catch you, they're not going to catch you a couple of steps down", said Gribble. "It's not going to happen".
