Greg Owen was practicing for this week’s Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass on Monday when he noticed a baby blue jay fall out of a tree and into a water hazard. The bird appeared to be struggling, so Owen did what any normal PGA Tour golfer would do: He stripped down to his skivvies and waded into a pond to save birdie.

Working with Greg Owen during his practice round at TPC Sawgrass today for the Players Championship. Walking off the 16 th tee with Greg and Brandt Snedeker when a baby blue jay falls out of a tree, tries to fly across a pond only to make it half way across. What does the 6'5 210 lb big man do? Jump in and save the bird of course!! #bigheart #animallover

The video was taken by Tony Ziegler, who as Owen’s instructor was there ostensibly to film his strokes and not this selfless act of bird heroism, which if there’s any justice in the world should earn the 44-year-old Englishman his first PGA Tour win.

It should be noted that alligators have been known to lurk in the waters of TPC Sawgrass, with course workers removing a nine-footer in 2012. As you can see from the below video, these course workers are officially crazy.

The gators have sporadically updated Twitter accounts.
