This might be the bravest golfer ever. 

During his Thursday round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Cody Gribble noticed an alligator hanging out on the sixth fairway right along the water. 

Most golfers would walk briskly the other way, but Gribble did the opposite. He casually walked up to the gator and smacked its tail, causing the gator to scatter back into the water.

"The gator looked like he needed some exercise,” Gribble joked to the Golf Channel after shooting a five-over 77 at Bay Hill in Orlando. 

The 26-year-old Gribble, who grew up in Dallas, said it's a trick he's used in the past on intrusive alligators. 

"I wasn’t too worried about it. I mean, it’s like a jolt. It’s quick. They’re not going to catch you," he said. 

Watch the daring maneuver above.
