Smylie Kaufman didn’t have the same response as Cody Gribble to the large gator at Bay Hill. Kaufman was walking down the sixth fairway during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and didn’t notice the reptile until he was almost on top of it.
His reaction was priceless.
Smylie’s not smiling! 😅
Watch out for the gator!

At least he had his putter ready to defend himself.
Kaufman commented on the scare after his round saying, “I didn’t want any part of that one.”
“We were just walking, we weren’t looking,” Kaufman explained. “If I would of saw it, I would have been on the right edge of the fairway. I know to stay away from those things, especially after watching what Cody did yesterday. I didn’t want any part of that one cause I knew he had to be a little mad. As soon as I realized it was that one, I flipped out.”
To each his own.
