It’s probably something we’ve all suspected could happen while playing golf, but we’ve never actually seen a golf ball hit a bird mid-flight. At least, not until Jimmy Walker did it at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Walker’s incredibly weird tee shot on hole No. 17 during Friday’s second round is definitely something you don’t see every day. The fact that it landed in the fairway after hitting a bird is equally as impressive.
And before you ask, the answer is “no.” Walker doesn’t automatically get a birdie for doing it.
