English pro golfer Greg Owen is the real MVP.
During Monday's practice round at THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, he and fellow pro golfer Brandt Snedeker were walking off the 16th tee when they saw a baby blue jay fall from a tree. The little guy attempted to fly across the pond only to make it about halfway before falling in.
Proving that his heart is as big as his 6 foot 5, 210 pound frame, Owen does what any animal lover would do. He strips down to his skivvies, hops in the water and scoops the blue jay up, carrying him to safety.
"Never thought an Englishman would get so concerned about a blue jay," a voice is heard saying off-camera.
Since the video was uploaded Monday to Ziegler Golf School's Facebook page, it's racked up more than 150,000 views and has been shared more than 1,300 times.

We salute you.
