It takes tremendous guts and b***s to shoo away an alligator who is having the time of his life at a lush-green golf course. Normally harmless creatures until you call for danger by doing something silly.

No one can yet understand what was going on in the mind of 26-year-old golfer Cody Gribble when he decided to take things in his own hands and ask the alligator to get the s*** out of his golf course. This happened during the PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational this week at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando, Florida.

Social media users brought references to Chubbs Peterson, played by Carl Weathers a.k.a. Apollo Creed, in the movie Happy Gilmore. The character of Chubbs Peterson was a pro golfer who was forced to retire early when his hand was bitten off by an alligator.
