Joanne and Len Sadowsky were playing in a couple's tournament Saturday at the Bonita Springs National Golf Course when Joanne Sadowsky shanked the light-pink ball to the right, right into an alligator's mouth, the Naples Daily News reported.

"It saved me from a hazard penalty," she told the Daily News.

However, the free drop was not enough to help the Sadowskys win the tournament.
