WATCH: Kaufman has reasonable reaction after being surprised by a gator
After what Cody Gribble did on Thursday, Kaufman shows how you're supposed to respond
Cody Gribble is a crazy person. We saw that on Thursday when he tapped a live gator on the tail at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in the first round on Thursday.
What does any of that have to do with Smiley Kaufman? Well, he ran into the same gator on the 6th hole at Bay Hill and nearly passed out. Kaufman doesn’t see the gator until he’s about 15 feet away but recoils like he’s seen his life flash before his eyes, which it probably did.
The best part for me was seeing his caddie jump back because he hadn’t seen the thing either.
Kaufman shot 77-78 and will miss the cut.
