Cody Gribble gives the perfect reaction after hitting an embarrassing shot

July 13, 2017

In Thursday's opening round of the John Deere Classic, Cody Gribble did something all weekend hackers are familiar with. Hitting a fairway wood on the par-5 17th at TPC Deere Run, Gribble topped his second shot in embarrassing fashion. How the PGA Tour rookie reacted, however, is something most golfers could learn from.

He laughed.

Yep, whereas many guys at your local club would show their frustration for a shot that bad by cursing or throwing a club, the guy actually playing for some serious stakes just chuckled at the lowlight. Check it out:

And why not? Even the world's best players are capable of bloopers -- just ask shank masters Ian Poulter and Webb Simpson. Gribble wound up making par on the hole.

So try to follow Cody Gribble's lead when it comes to handling bad shots on the golf course. However, we still recommend that you don't follow his lead when it comes to dealing with gators on the golf course.
