Two completely different ways to deal with an alligator on a golf course



Cody Gribble and Smylie Kaufman offered up two different ways of dealing with alligators on a golf course at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.

Gribble took the reckless route, while Kaufman employed the classic scream-and-run tactic. Check out the videos below, each of which went viral for their own reasons.

    As a Floridian, almost every course I play has gators. They are peaceful and will leave you alone for the most part… BUT, they are much faster than you think. If that gator turned towards Cody there is no way he’s getting away unscathed.

    Hey Cody, I have personal experience with a gator in Florida. That thing is lightning fast and could have chosen his leg just as fast as it chose the water. You’re one LUCKY dude that you got to finish your round!

    I’ve grown up with gators my whole life, they are as afraid of us as we are of them. What Cody did is what I do almost on a daily basis when I fish the banks of my farm… Treat them with respect…

      You sound like that guy who owns a pit bull….”no, no…it’s a great dog”….but a total stranger would never slap its arse and expect to get away with it evertime

        Don’t own bull terriers, but they are great dogs. It’s the owners I worry about. I own different types of animals, from dogs, cats, horses, cattle, chickens, etc… I am a veterinarian… Love all of God’s creatures.

    Would have been awesome if the tour fined CG for being a total idiot (let’s say $50k)

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this



We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins



With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.

Steph Curry did anything but embarrass himself in Tour debut



Vegas set the over/under on Steph Curry’s opening round at the Ellie Mae Classic at 76.5.

And Curry didn’t sound like the confident man who’s perennially ready to hoist a 3-pointer from any distance in his post-practice round press conference yesterday.

But when he stepped inside the ropes as a competitor, the Golden State Warriors point guard was very much the man who does things like this

Which is really impressive, considering this post-round quote:

“As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I couldn’t feel anything. After about four holes I settled down.”

So, if you bet the over, you can’t be blamed. Curry, however, had other plans for his debut, getting around par-70 TPC Stonebrae in 74 strokes.

After starting off with a bogey (and a tee shot that landed in a golf cart cup holder), Curry played his remaining 17 holes in a respectable three over. That’s pretty damn good.

The highlight was a curling birdie putt at the par-3 sixth hole (his 15th of the day). Jordan Spieth’s fellow Under Armour sponsee celebrated with a variation on Spieth’s “go get that” Open command (per ESPN’s Michael Collins)

Curry plays to a 0.6 handicap, did excellent work at TPC Stonebrae, it has to be said. And while he was tied for 141st at the time he completed his round, his plus-4 round placed him four strokes off the cut-line pace and ahead of a handful of pros.

Enjoy a few highlights of No. 30’s 74, courtesy of the Tour. As you can see, Curry’s shots aren’t dripping with tour pro precision (yet), but the man is a solid scrambler and a gritty competitor.

Well played, Mr. Curry.
