Fowler takes on alligator during second round at Zurich Classic

Updated: 

Rickie Fowler is at a pretty good place in his life right now.

He is playing great golf on the PGA Tour, just got back from Spring Break with Justin Thomas, Smylie Kaufman and Jordan Spieth, and he started dating Allison Stokke, a former pole vaulter and model.

Life is good for Fowler. However, the American golfer may have shown a bit too much confidence during the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans on Friday.

While helping Thomas Pieters with an alligator problem, Fowler - paired with Jason Day at the team event - picked up a rake and prodded the large animal back into the murky water at TPC of Louisiana.

Everything turned out all right, but Fowler likely had no clue what that alligator was going to do. 

This may have been a fun incident in the end, but not highly advisable to copy.
