Watch how Rickie Fowler dealt with an alligator by the course at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Rickie Fowler came up with a different way of dealing with an unwanted visitor during the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Fowler and playing partner Jason Day were in a fourball alongside Daniel Berger and Belgium’s Thomas Pieters, who saw his ball end up all-too close to an alligator at the par-four fourth.
With his ball stopping precariously close to the hazard where the reptile was lurking, Pieters was reluctant to play his approach until it had moved.

The alligator was lurking in the water at TPC Louisiana

Fowler then stepped up to assist the Belgian, picking up a rake from the neighbouring bunker to prod the alligator back into the water hazard.
The incident comes weeks after Fowler’s friend Smylie Kaufman was left freaked out by an alligator on the course during the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a day on from Cody Gribble dealing with a crocodile using his hands!
