"I shanked the ball to the right, and it was heading to the water," Sadowsky told the Daily News. "It was close to the gator's head. He saw it, jumped up and caught it."
Sadowsky’s light pink golf ball was “caught” by the alligator, meaning she was entitled to a free drop.
"It saved me from a hazard penalty," Sadowsky, told the Daily News."We've seen them with a fish or a turtle in their mouths, but never a golf ball."
The lucky break did not help Sadowsky and her husband, Len, as they finished out of the money in the tournament, the newspaper reported.
