American golfer Cody Gribble demonstrated remarkable bravery on Thursday by grabbing an alligator by its tail to usher it off an Orlando golf course.
Gribble, 26, was taking part in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill when the stray alligator caught his attention mid-round.
The reptile was lounging in the Orlando sun before the Texas-born golfer casually approached the creature it in order to shoo away the live hazard.
In remarkably relaxed fashion, Gribble approached the alligator from behind before shaking it by the tail.
The started reptile dived straight into the Bay Hill Lake allowing Gribbs to get on with his round - alligator free.
"I've done it a couple times before," said Gribble.
"If you think if that's crazy, you should meet my father, Bill Gribble. Next time you see him, have an interview with him. He loves all types of animals.
"I wasn't too worried about it at the time. Those guys, I mean, it's like a jolt, it's quick, they're not going to catch you, they're not going to catch you a couple of steps down.
"I mean, they're going to get you really quick early, but I'm not in its way. I'm right behind him. It's not going to happen."
