North Port, Fla., resident Jack Dupre was playing out at Myakka Pines golf course when he hit a somewhat wayward shot. A shot that could have very well ended up in the hazard ended up - well, in a different kind of hazard. Pretty sure it's a free drop (if you can get the ball).

His playing partners did what all good playing partners would do. No, not consult a rule book, call the pro shop, caution their friend about, they grabbed their phones and started taking pictures.
