Keep your head on a swivel, kids. And birds.

A goose seemingly minding its own business walking down the fairway on the 8th hole at the PGA National in Palm Beach during the final round of the Honda Classic on Sunday got hit from behind by a Tiger Woods tee shot.

Don’t worry, the goose got hit on the bounce and hopped right back up.


And guess what? Woods finished with a very appropriate birdie on the hole. Woods started the day at even par and was 3-under through the front nine. The good vibes didn’t last on the back nine, however. Maybe because of a lack of geese. He was 3-over on the back for an even 70 on the day and an even-par finish for the tournament.
