BONITA SPRINGS, FL—A couple’s golf tournament at the Bonita National Golf Club cost a woman a golf ball on Saturday, when a bad tee off on hole 2 ended up with the ball in an alligator’s mouth.
“I shanked the ball to the right, and it was heading to the water,” Joanne Sadowsky told the Naples Daily News. “It was close to the gator’s head. He saw it, jumped up and caught it.”
Sadowsky says she didn’t mind losing the ball to a gator though.
“It saved me from a hazard penalty,” she said.
