“My Life as a Golf Marshall” ; Tales From the Edge”:BIRDSLAUGHTER

There is a problem at the golf course I marshall at and that is the proliferation of Canada Geese on and surrounding the green on the third hole in the spring months. Bird poop is everywhere. On my day off I was playing golf  and hit a high 9 iron 130 yards out from the green and as my shot landed I heard my companions say, “Holy shit you just hit a bird”. Indeed BIRD DOWN! The poor thing was on its back and convulsing and being attacked by a crazy goose a few years ago on the 9th hole I swear this was not revenge. Really. But the poor fellow righted himself and no reports were made of a deceased goose. Needless to say my concentration was shattered for a few holes and since no birdslaughter charges were laid I suppose I escaped the wrath of the animal rights activists!
